Acclaimed Nature Photographer Susan Middleton in The Green Room
On Friday, Aug. 24, 2018, The Merwin Conservancy will present an intimate evening with photographer Susan Middleton in The Green Room, an environmental and literary salon series that is a program of the Merwin Conservancy with a mission to foster a reverence for language, nature, and imagination.
Susan Middleton is an acclaimed photographer, author, lecturer, and Guggenheim fellow. Blending art and science, she specializes in the portraiture of rare and endangered animals, plants, sites, and cultures. Her award winning books, exhibitions, and presentations have been influential tools of conservation. Her most recent book is Spineless: Portraits of Marine Invertebrates, the Backbone of Life (Abrams, 2014). Previous books include Evidence of Evolution (Abrams 2009), Archipelago and Remains of a Rainbow (National Geographic); Witness and Here Today (Chronicle Books).
Middleton will be joined on stage by renowned botanists Steve Perlman and Hank Oppenheimer, who together did extensive work as Susan’s guides in the making of her book Remains of a Rainbow. The event begins at 7:00 p.m. in the McCoy Studio Theater at the Maui Arts & Cultural Center (MACC).
“This will be an inspiring evening where art and science can share the spotlight,” said Sara Tekula, interim Executive Director at The Merwin Conservancy. “Susan Middleton’s stunning photographs of the rare flora and fauna of Hawai‘i and the Pacific have moved so many of us to fall in love with the world all over again.”
Tickets are $25 per person, with a $10 rate students with a valid I.D.. Tickets are available at the MACC box office, by phone at (808) 242-SHOW, or online.
