    Harnessing the Wind

    Saturday July 1, 2017 / 2 – 3 pm

    Deon Reynolds is a photographer based in Eureka, Nevada, whose curiosity allows him to find quirky and unusual aspects in the wide-open spaces of the West.  His work, archived in the Center for Art + Environment, reveals the intricate engineering behind wind turbines while capturing the character of the land where they stand.  Join Deon as he discusses how his photography makes these sometimes harsh landscapes approachable and even humorous, and explores how renewable energy has become part of our landscape.
