Michale Glennon, Ray Brook, has found a way to combine her love of science and of fiber arts. Join us on Wednesday, September 22, f7 p.m. for a conversation with Michale about her project Wool and Water, an innovative approach to presenting what scientific studies are finding out about the health of Adirondack lakes. We'll look at some of the beautiful fiber pieces Michale has made, talk about what they mean for water quality in the Adirondacks, and hear from Michale how others can get involved in this project.
Wool and Water is a data art project that blends fiber art with scientific data to create visual representations of changing water quality conditions in the Adirondacks.
In association with the 50th anniversary of the Clean Water Act, the Paul Smith’s College Adirondack Watershed Institute has embarked on a collaborative fiber arts project supported by the Champlain Valley National Heritage Partnership to showcase the legacy of protecting clean water in the Lake Champlain Basin and beyond.
Michale Glennon serves as the Science Director for AWI. She has conducted ecological research in the Adirondack Park for more than two decades and has been knitting for almost four decades. This exhibit will open on September 8 and close on September 25, 2021.
