Live Event: Art That Restores

Art is celebrated for its ability to revive the human spirit, but there is a growing legion of artists whose work also restores the landscape. Basia Irland creates such work in rivers around the world; here, she discusses her project “Books of Ice,” which appeared in the March/April 2013 issue of Orion. She was joined by fellow restorative artist Daniel McCormick, who was profiled in Orion in 2008 (“Healing Sculpture“), and by author and art critic William Fox.
