Uncharted Waters: Ann Holsberry

In Uncharted Waters, Ann Holsberry's large silk cyanotype prints of sea kelp and their predators will be hung in the two-story public atrium of the David Brower Center to create an immersive underwater environment, to evoke the beauty and fragility of nearshore ecosystems, and to inspire their protection.

On June 23, Ann will participate in a panel discussion with members of the Above/Below Project, a group of women artists, scientists, strategists and ocean advocates whose aim is to raise awareness of ocean stewardship. She will also be teaching a nature-based cyanotype workshop in partnership with Youth Spirit Artworks to advance art opportunities for underserved youth. Funded by a Berkeley Civic Arts Grant.
