Homer Drawdown Peatland Project
September 10 - October 10
Homer Drawdown: Peatland Project is a community-wide collaboration to protect and restore peatlands. Peatlands are special wetlands that store a lot of carbon and play critical roles in our local ecosystems, cultures, and economies.
The Pratt Museum & Park is delighted to collaborate with Homer Drawdown and Bunnell Street Arts Center to present art programs that elevate the importance of peatlands for planetary sustainability. Art for Peat includes a residency, an exhibit, and a mural opportunity.
Art for Peat Artist in Residence 2021: Artist in Residence Sheryl Maree Reily will spend two weeks in mid-June and mid-September exploring, documenting, and interpreting peatlands in the Homer area through photographic research and documentation, interviews, and community engagement. More information about Sheryl’s residency.
Art for Peat at the Pratt Museum & Park is an exhibition for art highlighting the importance of Art for Peat. The exhibition will be from September 10th until October 10th in the museum’s lower level. The show includes a new installation by Sheryl Maree Reily and an exhibition opportunity for additional arts on the surrounding walls. Artwork may be of variable dimensions and media, wall-mounted, projected, performed, etc. Call for proposals coming soon!
