Art Links

OK, here goes…

This is an initial list of helpful networks, organizations and art schools with environmental content or inter- and transdisciplinary programs – a blogroll compacted into a post 🙂

The list is not complete, and we’re grateful for further suggestions and reciprocal posting! Below that is an ongoing list of artists who have worked with soil or soil conservation issues. Some are personal friends and colleagues, others are iconographic art heroes who have no idea of our attempt to bridge these two worlds. We have had the pleasure of interviewing some of these wonderful people and will hopefully get some of that material online soon.
