Greening the Bay Artist Residency

From St. Norbert College, June 1, 2015
by Mike Counter, mike.counter@snc.edu, 920-403-3089

The Greening the Bay artist residency will bring nationally recognized interdisciplinary artists
PlantBot Genetics to Green Bay for a three-week residency, from June 9-30. The artists will
host their dynamic Moth Project throughout partner sites in and around Green Bay,
including St. Norbert College on Thursday, June 18. A full list of events and sites for the
Moth Project will be available at http://www.snc.edu/moths.

The project involves a series of portable, artistic garden lights, powered by solar panels,
which are designed to attract moths for pollination. The Moth Project aims to combine art,
sustainability, and entomological and horticultural research. It uses performance, sculpture
and community data-gathering to speak about ecology in general and the importance of
pollinators in particular.

Community members will have the opportunity to engage with the artists of PlantBot
Genetics and their work through exhibitions, demonstrations, multimedia installations and
lectures.

The National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) awarded a grant of $10,000 to St. Norbert
College to support its Greening the Bay artist residency.

Through its grants to thousands of nonprofit organizations each year, the NEA promotes
opportunities for people in communities across America to experience the arts and exercise
their creativity.
