“Our planet is an asset with value – let’s not treat it like a ‘going-out-of-business sale’!”
This empowering and humorous message on sustainable living includes how environmentalist and actor Ed Begley Jr. began his 37-year eco-journey in 1970, including stories about his first electric car and his first attempt at composting. Hear Ed’s take on global climate change, pollution, dependency on Mid-East oil – and how he believes that these are “challenges” that can be overcome.
Plato’s Cave and the Light Inside
Monday, May 4, 2009
12:00 pm – 1:45 pm
“My work is about space and the light that inhabits it. It is about how you can confront that space and plumb it. It is about your seeing, like the wordless thought that comes from looking into a fire.”
James Turrell, an artist working with light and space and best known for his work in progress, Roden Crater, will present an overview of his work and his sources of inspiration. His work can be found in collections worldwide. For more than four decades, he has created striking works that play with perception and the effect of light within a created space. Over the past two decades, his work has been recognized in exhibitions in major museums around the world, including the Guggenheim Museum, Whitney Museum of American Art in New York; Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles, San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, and the Panza di Biumo Collection, Varese, Italy.
Sponsored by Cooper Lighting, also presenting their SOURCE Awards.
