California has 1,270 miles of mainland coast that is home to millions of people, plants and animals. Throughout California’s rich history, the coastal environment has been a muse that has inspired many artists. What about these natural environments inspires people to create magnificent works of art? Why are these areas so special?
During this program we will teach methods of how scientists create and use art, as well as showcase other styles of art from early pioneering naturalists to the contemporary artists of our time.
This special live event supports the California Coastal Commission's Annual Art and Poetry Contest.
