DRS Featured in Art Exhibit

The CLUI’s desert research station was featured in the exhibit Post-Landscape: Between Nature and Culture at the Pomona College of Art, from September 4 to October 21, 2001. The exhibition also included video, paintings, sculpture and photographs by artists such as Kim Abeles, Sandow Birk, Laurie Brown, and Skeet McAuley.

The CLUI furnished display panels describing the desert environment of Southern California, and the DRS. The museum assisted with coordinating volunteers to keep the DRS open to the public during regular hours, supporting its fall season, and handouts with a directional map to the DRS were available as part of the display. As with its inauguration at the Museum of Contemporary Art last year, by partnering with other cultural organizations in this manner, the DRS can continue to draw people out of exhibits about the landscape, and into the greatest exhibit of all, the landscape itself.
