Art and science are more alike than one would think: a hypothesis or question turns into research and data collection, which is studied and digested, and then a product or conclusion is made. Both artists and scientists undergo novel and generative processes of inquiry and knowledge production. New York City Urban Field Station brings art and science together with their Artists in Residence program to foster this intersection and new ideas and programs about urban conservation and stewardship will emerge.

Join us as the current group and past group of NYC Urban Field Station Artists in Residents talk about their work and its possibilities and role in New York City. The event will take place at the Arsenal Gallery in Central Park, the headquarters of the NYC Parks Department, where the work of the first six participating artists will be featured.  

This exhibition highlights projects explored in a variety of media by UFS resident artists Katie Holten, Matthew Jensen, Mary Mattingly, Lize Mogel, Heidi Neilson, and Adam Stoltman. The NYC UFS is a partnership between The USDA Forest Service, NYC Parks, and the Natural Areas Conservancy.
