Meet the Artist: Lisa Meek, BiblioBotany

Meet the artist behind the thought-provoking exhibit BiblioBotany! Now on display in Phipps' Welcome Center Gallery

To reflect complex social issues, Meek looks for symbolism in each book page she uses to encourage people to process ideas in new ways. For her display at Phipps, Meek chose to feature sculptures that revolve around the topic of protecting the land, water and the species who depend on it. Each piece highlights the inextricable connection between humans and nature to emphasize the importance of how we care for nature and our impacts on the future.

Meet artist Lisa Meek at Phipps on Sat., Feb. 4 and Sun., March 5 from 1 – 3 p.m. This event is free with Conservatory admission.
