In a Time of Change- Trophic Cascades
The Alaska- based artists/scientists consortium In a Time of Change, in collaboration with Denali National Park and Preserve (PP), the Murie Science and Learning Center, and Bonanza Creek Long Term Ecological Research Program, is producing a project in 2012-13 that focuses on the dynamics of predator/prey interactions, entitled In a Time of Change: Trophic Cascades.
Applications are being accepted from artists of all disciplines and media, including performing artists, visual artists, writers, composers, new media artists, documentary filmmakers and others. Selected artists will participate in a 3-day field workshop in Denali National PP and day trips to Bonanza Creek near Fairbanks.
The project will culminate in an integrated exhibit, featuring works by selected artists. This exhibit will be presented at the Bear Gallery in Fairbanks and the Denali National Park and Preserve website. Additional exhibit venues will be identified for a possible tour of the exhibit in other Alaskan cities and elsewhere in the U.S.

Did You Know?
The vast landscapes of interior Alaska are changing. Large glaciers are receding, permafrost is melting and woody plants are spreading. Comparison of "then-and-now" photographs and data from major vegetation monitoring should allow detection, understanding and potential management of these changes.
