June 16, 2016 at THE THING QUARTERLY in San Francisco.
We are closing Nathan Lynch’s phenomenal exhibition, Awards Ceremony, at THE THING Quarterly. For the month of May and June, we challenged Nathan to make the most ridiculously large ceramic sculpture that he could make. He chose to create an 800 lb, 5 foot tall ceramic trophy. And it goes away after the 16th of June, so if you haven’t seen it yet, come down and take a look.
6-7PM NATHAN LYNCH & ECOLOGIST JESSIE BECK IN CONVERSATION
Since 2009, Nathan has worked with MORELAB (formerly REBAR) and Oikonos Ecosystem Knowledge to design and fabricate nest modules for seabirds in peril. Working on Año Nuevo Island and The Farallons, the team has been designing, building, and installing ceramic homes for the Rhinocerous Auklet, a state-listed species of concern. The team’s recent 2015 homes for Cassin’s Aucklets were designed and fabricated with students at CCA. We’ve long been a fan of this project and are very excited to host an evening with Nathan and Jessie to hear more about how art and science can save the world…or at least the Rhinocerous Auklet.
This event is free and open to the public.
