DESERT LIFE: Field Studies of Art+Nature in the Southwest

Desert Life is a one-of-a-kind, ART, BIOLOGY and NATURE immersion experience in the Chihuahuan Desert in the Southwest, U.S. This site-specific program focuses on an ART and SCIENCE exploration of the diverse desert wildlife from varied natural habitats of the Chihuahuan Desert.  For generations the Southwest deserts, their diverse, unique wildlife and stunning geography, have been the source of inspiration and wonder for artists, naturalists, and biologists.  Through hands-on observation, artistic interpretation, collaboration and various biological and natural history methods, we will learn to utilize the natural habitat as a STUDIO+LAB to explore and make informed art about desert plants, animals, and nature.

By Kendra Oliver

I am an experienced scientist passionate about science communication, multi-disciplinary projects, and online learning and engagement approaches. It is critical that we find new strategies to communicate scientific finding and engage the public. Using online learning and visualization methods, I am exploring visual science communication to support online education and science marketing approaches. Although classically trained as a research scientist in pharmacology, I consider myself a science communication designer with skills ranging from project management, pedagogical approaches to online learning, video production, instructional design, and web design. With a foundation as a cross-disciplinary team member, I am interested in developing and utilizing these skills to produce science marketing, communication, and engagement strategies, particularly those at the intersection of art and science.
