Terraforming: Art and Engineering in the Sacramento Watershed (Self-guided Tour)

Log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Embark on a self-guided tour of Stanford University Libraries' cross-disciplinary exhibition, Terraforming: Art and Engineering in the Sacramento Watershed.

The exhibition, co-curated by Laura Cassidy Rogers (PhD Candidate in Modern Thought and Literature, Stanford University) and Emily Grubert (PhD Candidate in the Emmett Interdisciplinary Program in Environment and Resources, Stanford University), is on view in the Peterson Gallery and Munger Rotunda in the Green Library Bing Wing, from January 26 to April 30, 2017.

Terraforming: Art and Engineering in the Sacramento Watershed examines the history of freshwater in the Sacramento Watershed, juxtaposing materials from the archive of California artists Helen and Newton Harrison with materials from local, state, and national archives that document the development of water resources in California’s Central Valley and the West. Presented as discrete, parallel displays—with Art on one side of the gallery and Engineering on the other—the exhibition demonstrates that social and environmental consciousness has manifest in both professions, and that artists and engineers can work together to rethink and reimagine freshwater landscapes and ecology in a sustainable way.
