Connecting with Nature through Art: An Ecopsychological Exploration

Artists Michelle Kaisersatt and Kimber Olson will be joined by University of St. Thomas Professor of Psychology and former Director of Environmental Studies Dr. Britain Scott to delve into the ways art may help connect people to non-human nature.
