Event Description

For the first etc. lecture of 2021, we are inspired by our immersive installation In the Night Garden by Natasha Bowdoin. Hear about the art of caring for and protecting nature, even when it goes awry. Tiana Rehman, Collections Manager of the Philecology Herbarium at the Botanical Research Institute of Texas (BRIT), will share her expertise in facilitating the care, usage, and growth of BRIT’s scientific plant collection of over 1.4 million specimens. She will talk about her work in relation to William Trost Richards’ Woodland Glade (1860). Rob Denkhaus, Director of the Fort Worth Nature Center and Refuge and adjunct professor of environmental science at Texas Christian University, will share his experience managing the refuge with prescribed burning and other land management tactics. He will talk about his work in relation to Terry Evans’ Dune & Swale (2018).

Experts Talk on the Carter (etc.) is a monthly lecture series that occurs on the fourth Thursday of each month, January through April. From artists to zookeepers, bakers to scientists, join us on Zoom to hear from local experts about a work in our collection, helping us see art through the lens of their own work and passions.

The link to join the talk will be sent via Eventbrite, the Carter’s ticketing platform, in both a confirmation email upon registration as well as a reminder email before the event.
