Watershed Basics

This event has passed.

BAASICS.4: Watershed brings together a diverse group of artists and scientists to reflect on the San Francisco Bay Area watershed. Professor Jay Lund will highlight and explore the ramifications of the urban Bay Area’s dependence on water from distant sources; environmental artists Daniel McCormick and Mary O’Brien will discuss what they term remedial art, surveying some of their Watershed Sculpture projects; Professor Sarah Cohen will introduce us to “sea vomit” and other aquatic species as she spotlights aquatic diversity in the Bay; accompanied by a string quartet, Karl Cronin, Music Director of the Americana Orchestra, will guide us through a poetic meditation on our relationship to the Hetch Hetchy Valley. These participants and others will join BAASICS co-founders and producers Selene Foster and Christopher Reiger for a entertaining and meandering exploration of the ecology and natural history of our region’s namesake and the tributaries that flow into it.

Following the ODC Theater program, a reception will be held immediately next door, at Root Division, an arts and arts education non-profit. Join us for drinks, good conversation, and networking. Space is limited, register online.
