Presented by Katelyn Hudson, D.Arch, Ph.D / Designer, Cushman Design Group.

Join Katelyn Hudson to explore the background of biophilic design. Harnessing the concept of biophilia, practitioners from beyond the field of hard sciences observe the benefits of fostering a connection with nature though overt and abstract natural elements – the most logical application of which is found in art and architecture.

The Currently Speaking series hosts experts in various contemporary art genres and media to encourage casual discourse and meaningful interactions between our community, speakers, and the art they showcase. Artists in this exhibition use the metaphor of a garden to address climate change, decolonization, feminism, societal tensions, and our endangered environment by presenting work on the topic.
