Join Meadowbrook's June 2021 Artist in Residence Summer J. Hart, an interdisciplinary artist and writer whose work will include a series of ink, salt, air, and thread drawings on paper in response to the flora and fauna of the garden at Meadowbrook Farm. Hart’s work explores the symbiotic relationships between plants and animals, as well as evolutionary mechanisms for both defense and reproduction.

This talk is part of a monthly series featuring PHS Meadowbrook Farm Artists in Residence.
