Cannoo Hills Creative Arts Residency

For four years, the Cary Institute has offered a residency program for artists and writers dedicated to inspiring creative works that convey ecosystem concepts to the public. The program’s future has been secured through a generous endowment by Aldo Leopold Society member Belinda Kaye. Her gift will ensure that the newly-named Cannoo Hills Creative Arts Residency remains a permanent part of the Cary Institute’s intellectual landscape.

Observations from painters, writers, and performers are essential to recording nature, inspiring scientific understanding, and planting the seeds of ecological awareness. To date, the experience has engaged an array of talents, from a landscape painter and an expeditionary artist to the author of award-winning children’s books. Outcomes have included paintings, journalistic writings, and creative works in other media.  

This winter, theater artists Patrick Wadden and Marlena Marallo will join the Cary Institute as residents. Their production company, The Arm of the Sea Theater, uses vibrant puppets and engaging narratives to teach complex scientific concepts to K-12 audiences. To learn more about the program, visit:
