Hughen/Starkweather: Where Water Meets Land is on view at the Bolinas Museum September 23–November 12, 2017. The exhibit features recent works from Hughen/Starkweather’s project, Shifting Shorelines, in which the artists investigate areas where water meets land, and the complex human, environmental, and historical factors that shape these places. The exhibit includes historic items from the museum archives used by the artists as source materials for the artworks. Related events include a performance by artist Constance Hockaday and Miwok poet Sky Road Webb on October 7, and a panel discussion Between the Tides: Living Shorelines in a Time of Climate Change on October 21, moderated by Alison Sant of the Studio for Urban Projects.
As part of the extensive research for this project, Hughen/Starkweather conducted interviews with community members Burr Heneman (environmentalist), Doris Sloan (scientist), Dewey Livingston (historian), Sky Road Webb (Miwok poet), Tamae Agnoli (artist), Joe Mueller (scientist and educator), and Don Murch (farmer and fisherman), among others.
