Artist Talk: Brandon Ballengée on Adaptation & Activism (Virtual)
Join visual artist, biologist, and environmental educator Brandon Ballengée for a discussion about his interdisciplinary work and Atelier de la Nature, an eco-educational campus and nature reserve in South Louisiana that Ballengée founded in 2017 with his wife, sustainable food educator Aurore Ballengée, and their children. The Atelier de la Nature’s programs use active learning methods that combine art with science and nature-based education as a means to inspire and spark conversation.
Ballengée creates interdisciplinary artworks inspired by his ecological field and laboratory research and has led eco-educational programs internationally. Since 1996, a central focus of his work has been the occurrence of developmental deformities and population declines among amphibians and other ectothermic vertebrates. His artwork has been exhibited throughout the US and internationally.
