Tree Huggers and Nests: The Art of Evelyn Politzer

Tree Huggers and Nests: The Art of Evelyn Politzer
Opening Reception Thursday, April 21 • 6pm-9pm
More than a cultural event, this exhibition is a call to action showing the need to defend and create measures to protect the planet’s natural reserves, particularly the Everglades in Florida. Evelyn Politzer’s work pays an homage to the Everglades. The use of organic materials produces changes or mutations, that gradually blend within nature, making the viewer aware of the beauty of our environment.
Both exhibitions take place outdoors in the Garden. In assembling the tree branches for the nests and drawing together lines of threads and wool, Evelyn, like a storyteller, creates a narrative of disappearance and survival. Each Nest tells the story of an endangered bird, and each Tree Hugger is a call for unity, action and transformation.
The use of colors, form, space, as well as the use of various materials in the work of Evelyn Politzer, shows how fully aware the artist is of art’s social responsibility. Preservation is the only way to recover what is still left, therefore the artist offers us an ethical reflection and a utopian model about the possibilities of dialogue between humans and nature.
*This art opening is simultaneous with our Earth Day Celebration. You only need to register for one even if you want to attend all three. The garden will be open, free to the public, from 6-9pm.
