The artists will be joined by Pam Solo, Founder and President of the Civil Society Institute (CSI), to discuss the Byram River, the Long Island Sound, and Port Chester, which inspired their residency highlighting the natural environment.
CSI supports the engagement of community-based organizations in state, regional and public policy issues.

The residency will also be open to the public Saturday, November 10 & 17, 12-5pm. Come and see the artists in action.
The Byram River, the Long Island Sound, and the area of Port
Chester, NY became the catalyst for this residency and enabled the artists to engage with one another to create this dynamic installation.
Both artists are influenced by water, marine life, and aquatic environments and this imagery is prominent in both of
their work. Dary and Lutz live in New York and Cape Cod, areas that are surrounded by water. This landscape, the light and prominence of water, informs both of their practices. In addition, Dary and Lutz are interested in the political dialogue surrounding climate change and its effects on water, from rising tides to the very real threat of potable water shortage. The timing of this most recent super storm, Sandy, its impact on our communities, our own personal lives, and this project, have been profound. The artists will engage in a dialiogue about these issues and their residency experience with Pam Solo.
Pam Solo is the founder and President of the Civil Society Institute (CSI). CSI’s core mission is to support the engagement of community based organizations in state, regional and public policy issues.
