Mary Mattingly: Last Library
In her artwork, Mattingly combines Earth sciences, ecology and utopian ideas to communicate information about the Earth’s changing climate and human response to our physical environment. Her installation, Last Library: Reading Rooms, Bridges and Tools for Integrating Ecological Ethics into Practice, stems from her belief that art and ecotopian thought can cultivate social change. On view February 6–July 18, 2020 at the CU Art Museum.
