Holly Haworth - 2015 Summer Artist Resident
Holly Haworth is a recipient of the Middlebury Fellowship in Environmental Journalism. She is interested in the connection of language to land, and what it means to be a full participant in one's place (both in time and space), using stories, myths, music, and oral histories to better understand and appreciate the ecosystems and bioregions of which we are a part. During her residency she will focus on geology and the night sky, writing about the stories that rocks tell us about the ancient earth and the wisdom of deep space.
