Art, Community, and the Environment

 
Standing at the nexus of sculpture, environmental design and social practice, Linda Wysong creates opportunities to “re-see” the everyday world. Her practice is not centered in object making but utilizes place, space, and experience. The work addresses the cycle of building and demolition, waste, water, communications, transportation, and land use, examining each of these systems in relationship to human history and the natural world.
