Alicia Escott | Discussion and Sunset Walk

Join us Sunday, May 28th 6-8pm for a discussion followed by a short neighborhood walk with Alicia Escott, Amber Hasselbring, Margaretha Haughwout, and Suzanne Husky, inspired by Alicia’s project Another Brief History of the Sunset.

Amber Hasselbring is the Executive Director of Nature in the City, San Francisco's first organization wholly dedicated to ecological conservation, restoration, and stewardship of the city's bio-regions. Amber will talk about her organization’s work restoring local habitat for endangered native butterflies.

Suzanne Husky and Margaretha Haughwout are artists and educators. Suzanne's work addresses land use and landscape history. Margaretha's work manifests as art and herbal medicine. They will discuss some of the positive and medicinal qualities found in what are considered “invasive” and non-native plants.

Alicia Escott is ISP’s current resident artist. Alicia will give a walk-through of her work at ISP exploring the interplay of endemic and introduced species as a meditation on community as it relates to the ecology of the Outer Sunset and Ocean Beach.
