This summer, The Victor D'Amico Institute of Art, AKA The Art Barge, is joining forces with Cornell Cooperative Extension (CCE) for Art and Science, a series of educational workshops lead by CCE's scientists, in collaboration with Art Barge instructors.

"We are excited about working with the Art Barge to advance our Art + Science objectives," said Kimberly Barbour, Marine Program Outreach Manager, Cornell Cooperative Extension of Suffolk County. "Inspiring people through science and nature, and having them express their creativity through art, plays an important part in helping foster stewardship of our marine resources."

The programming will launch on Saturday, June 11th with a Back to the Bays event. The debut will commemorate the scientist's and the community's stewardship of the waters that we all appreciate and adore. The evening will feature a discussion with researchers and educators from Cornell Cooperative Extension of Suffolk County's Back to the Bays Initiative, which will be moderated by CCE Marine Program Director, Chris Pickerell.

"Our kick off event this Saturday will include a discussion on current issues facing our marine environmental and stewardship opportunities that offer solutions to such issues," noted Barbour. "The presentation will also feature an overview of the Art + Science Workshop programming line up we are offering with the Art Barge this summer."

"The water that surrounds all of us is a most important issue," explained Christopher Kohan. "The Art Barge is honored to host an event that will help us understand how to respect and preserve it."

"The founding Director of the Art Barge, Victor D'Amico and his wife Mabel recognized the importance of the natural world, and it's role in artistic expression," added Barbour. "Chris Kohan, current Director of the Art Barge, has made it a point to continue their legacy by designing programming and outreach opportunities that reflect the profound role the natural environment plays in our lives and in the art world. We are very happy to be working with such an excellent partner to offer unique Art + Science programs."
