Casa Perez Ranch Day
Ballroom Marfa Botanical Collage Workshop
This Botanical Collage Workshop was part of the Judd Foundation’s 2018 Ranch Day, an open house at Casa Perez with guided visits of the Ranch, live music & BBQ, and a talk by Aimee Roberson, Coordinator of the Rio Grande Joint Venture for the American Bird Conservancy
Ballroom hosted a botanical collage workshop at Ranch Day inspired by the exhibition Hyperobjects, which features a selection of herbarium samples on loan from the Sul Ross State University Herbarium.
Together we learned what an herbarium sample is and why they are important to botanists while creating collages from native plant materials. Local botanist & artist Jeff Keeling and artist & plant lover Sandra Harper led this workshop that considered both science and aesthetics.
