Making Art Out of Invasive Bush Honeysuckle
Time & Location
About the Event
Dale Dufer talks about why he makes art out of invasive bush honeysuckle, how he uses art to strike up conversations about conservation and nature, and shares his story of cultivating creative partnerships to help raise awareness. He will also speak to working with school-aged kids and involving them in making art out of plants.
Bush Honeysuckle - It's EVERYWHERE! "Think About Tables" uses strengths of the plant itself to build ecological awareness and invasive species action. St. Louis artist and woodworker Dale Dufer invites you into "fun with sticks" as a way to explore resourceful solutions. Local eco-advocate Jean Ponzi assists. Dufer's Think About Tables workshops since 2016 sprouted the 2018 Trial of Bush Honeysuckle at St. Louis Old Courthouse, that has flowered into MEEA's Invasive Species Mock Trial Curriculum!
