Description:
Care about the mountains, streams, rivers, lakes, trees, and all the creatures that live in them? Want to participate in their preservation and care? Join author Mary Ellen Hannibal to find out how science is stepping away from ivory towers and laboratories back to its interdisciplinary roots, and how you, too, can be a scientist. Join us for this free event with Mary Ellen Hannibal. Her books will be on sale at the store and we hope you will support your local economy by shopping with us. More about the book: In the vein of H Is for Hawk and the work of Rebecca Solnit and Elizabeth Kolbert--a masterful consideration of the profound, urgent necessity to bear witness to life and loss. Here is a wide-ranging adventure in becoming a citizen scientist by an award-winning writer and environmental thought leader. As Mary Ellen Hannibal wades into tide pools, follows hawks, and scours mountains to collect data on threatened species, she discovers the power of a heroic cast of volunteers--and the makings of what may be our last, best hope in slowing an unprecedented mass extinction. Digging deeply, Hannibal traces today's tech-enabled citizen science movement to its roots: the centuries-long tradition of amateur observation by writers and naturalists. Prompted by her novelist father's sudden death, she also examines her own past--and discovers a family legacy of looking closely at the world. With unbending zeal for protecting the planet, she then turns her gaze to the wealth of species left to fight for. Combining original reporting, meticulous research, and memoir in impassioned prose, Citizen Scientist is a literary event, a blueprint for action, and the story of how one woman rescued herself from an odyssey of loss--with a new kind of science. What an extraordinary book! Mary Ellen Hannibal weaves together natural history, cutting-edge technology, and her own adventures into a story that is certain to inspire. Amy Stewart, author of The Drunken Botanist Deeply informed and highly readable, this is as much a soul-search as a book about science. Fortunately for us, Mary Ellen Hannibal locates some luminous souls who, by the light of their knowledge and determination, can lead us out of these dark times for life on Earth. Carl Safina, author of Beyond Words; What Animals Think and Feel The idea that science is something for a caste of high priests to attend to is simply wrong: Science is all around us, and we each can revel in its pleasures and processes. This is a lovely, empowering narrative. Bill McKibben, author of Eaarth Species are going extinct a thousand times faster than they should, our science tells us. But how do we know which, and where, any why, and above all what we can do about this crisis? No expensive technological machine counts biodiversity. Our knowledge comes globally, across decades, and from every land and sea, from the citizen scientist. Thats you and me, our kids, grandkids, and friends, armed with a notebook or perhaps a smartphone, but with those priceless and essential attributes of passion and curiosity. This book tells their story brilliantly. Stuart Pimm, Doris Duke Professor of Conservation Nicholas School of the Environment, Duke University An informative, emotional, and fascinating account of a personal journey to ecological citizen science. Muki Haklay, Professor of Geographical Information Science, Co-Director of the Extreme Citizen Science Group, University College London One of Hannibals themes in this ambitious new book is the double narrative, or the contradiction between what we tell ourselves we are doing every day and what is really going on. She explains that empires have been built on a biotic cleansing of species the loss of which now threatens the very foundation of our lives. Hannibal poses citizen science, or the contribution of amateurs to research, as a platform not only for change, but also as a new way of seeing without the old blinders. Invoking literary, historic, and scientific touchstones, and telling a personal story as well, she provides what citizen scientists John Steinbeck and Ed Ricketts called the toto picture. We cant afford to see the Earth any other way. Paul Ehrlich, Bing Professor of Population Studies, Stanford University My adventure in becoming a citizen scientist includes wading into tide pools, following hawks, and scouring mountains to collect data on species, to contribute to science, and to deepen my own sense of place. Citizen science has centuries-old roots and multiple meanings. With technological tools like iNaturalist, regular people can make geo-located observations in nature that allow for the same kind of analysis that inspired Charles Darwin. Darwin was a citizen scientist, or amateurhe had no advanced degree and worked for himself. For me the most compelling reason to do citizen science is the sixth mass extinction of plants and animals currently underway. In the book I do a lot of reporting and research on this scourge, but contextualize whats happening within a broad framework. Extreme citizen science often focuses on indigenous traditions for caring for the land, and I learn a great deal from the Amah Mutsun tribal band. I take great inspiration from three literary figures who contributed to citizen scienceJohn Steinbeck, Ed Ricketts, and Joseph Campbell. While the heros journey as discerned by Campbell needs updating for dealing with todays global issues, he still provides a model for aggregating individual efforts on behalf of nature to achieve collective impact. Thats the job of the citizen scientist.

Description:
Join us for a lecture by Philadelphia-based writer and curator Sarah Archer on the iconic graphic designers behind Craft Horizons magazine. This talk will trace the rich and complex relationship between craft and graphic design, starting with a brief aesthetic overview of influential Arts and Crafts publication The Craftsman, which debuted in 1901, as well as the proliferation of how-to manuals, magazines, and kits that helped popularize the hobby craft industry during the interwar period. All of this material set the stage for Craft Horizons, which debuted modestly during World War II with a rather spare graphic identity, and, thanks to the vision of its very first in-house art director, Sydney Butchkes would become more colorful, playful, and modern throughout the 1950's and '60s. In 1956, the graphic designers Robert Brownjohn and Ivan Chermayeff designed a new logo for Craft Horizons, in the years just prior to their respective work on the opening titles for numerous James Bond movies and the NBC logo. The modern look and feel Craft Horizons in the 1950s and '60s paralleled trends in the larger advertising and magazine worlds rather than those of the hobby craft industry. Though it advertised many a hobbyist's toolkit in its back pages, and covered a wide range of craft practices editorially, the magazine was visually coded to appeal to a modern, somewhat avant garde sensibility.  About Sarah Archer: Sarah Archer is a writer and independent curator based in Philadelphia. Prior to moving to Philadelphia to become Senior Curator at the Philadelphia Art Alliance, she was the Director of Greenwich House Pottery. She is a regular contributor to Hyperallergic, and her articles and reviews have appeared in The Journal of Modern Craft, Modern Magazine, Studio Potter, The Huffington Post, Slate, The New Yorker online, and The Washington Post. She has contributed essays to exhibition catalogs for the Portland Art Museum, the Milwaukee Museum of Art, and the Museum of Arts and Design. Her essays have been included in the anthologies Shows and Tales edited by Art Jewelry Forum, and The Ceramics Reader, forthcoming from Bloomsbury Press. She has curated exhibitions at Urban Glass and Pratt Manhattan Gallery. She holds a BA from Swarthmore College, and an MA from the Bard Graduate Center. She has taught at the Westphal College of Media Arts and Design, Drexel University, and the Tyler School of Art, Temple University, and given talks for the American Craft Council and the American Philosophical Society. She is a member of the board of Collab, the Philadelphia Museum of Art’s modern design advocacy group. Her first book, Midcentury Christmas, was published by Countryman Press and W.W. Norton in 2016.  This event is held in conjunction with The Good Making of Good Things: Craft Horizons 1941-1979, on view at The Center for Craft, Creativity & Design January 20 - May 20, 2017. The Good Making of Good Things: Craft Horizons 1941–1979 is curated by The Center for Craft, Creativity & Design’s (CCCD) 2017 Curatorial Fellows Elizabeth Essner, Lily Kane, and Meaghan Roddy and organized by CCCD. The CCCD Curatorial Fellowship is made possible by the John & Robyn Horn Foundation. This exhibition is generously sponsored by Rotasa Foundation with additional support from Gary Ferraro and Lorne Lassiter. All Craft Horizons images and content owned by the American Craft Council and provided courtesy of the ACC Library & Archives. CCCD is supported in part by a grant from the North Carolina Arts Council, a division of the Department of Natural and Cultural Resources.
