Spend an evening with ecological artist Lauren Strohacker as she shares three eye-catching projects that emphasize non-human species in an increasingly human-centric world: NO(w)HERE places Mexican gray wolf silhouettes in southwestern cities. Animal Land projects large-format videos of native species onto the cityscape. And Un-Fragmenting / Des-Fragmentando is a binational intervention in collaboration with the Northern Jaguar Project that projects larger-than-life jaguar trail camera images directly onto the U.S.-Mexico border wall. As both artist and environmental educator, Lauren enlists video installations and site-specific public art to showcase the landscapes and animals around us, bring wild places into our urban environments, and encourage the protection of native species.
