August – Our Changing Coastline: How Art Can Inspire Change
With artist Mary Edna Fraser Friday, August 17 • 6:30pm OHM Savannah Office

Life’s work is best told from an aerial perspective. Using photographs taken from the open cockpit of an airplane, renowned artist Mary Edna Fraser captures some of the Atlantic seaboard’s most remote barrier islands onto silk using the ancient medium of batik. Her art tells the story of the special places of the Georgia and South Carolina coasts and the importance of their preservation. “Witnessing their vulnerability and noticeable changes from the aerial viewpoint brings subtle environmental messages,” she says. Mary Edna’s work has been exhibited across the country, including at the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum, the Duke University Museum of Art, the National Academy of Sciences, and the National Science Foundation. Join Mary Edna Fraser and One Hundred Miles for a behind-the-scenes evening lecture on the issues of climate change and learn how, now more than ever, art can make a difference. Don’t miss this incredible artist and her story of change for our coast.
