Kim Garrison Means

Honoring Avi Kwa Ame, with Tribal and Rural Communities 

A third-generation resident of the East Mojave desert in Southern Nevada, Kim Garrison Means, who recently became an ecoartspace member, has spent the last two years as a key land advocate, using her art and curatorial skills to collaborate with tribal and rural communities on creative initiatives. Earlier this year, Garrison Means, along with artists Checko Salgado and Mikayla Whitmore, curated Spirit of the Land: Artists Honor Avi Kwa Ame, organized by the Barrick Museum of Art at the University of Nevada Las Vegas. This traveling exhibition features work by over 50 tribal, regional and national artists, writers, musicians and dancers, and highlights the history, culture, and natural wonders of this region, along with issues of concern about land use, stewardship, and protection for future generations.

Members and one guest are free. General Public can attend for $10. Capacity is 100 participants. All participants MUST REGISTER.


Online Course for Member Artists

January 22 - March 12, 2023

DEADLINE to register January 15

This course is designed exclusively for ecoartspace members and will prepare artists to develop ways of thinking about sustainability in their practice, both conceptually and physically. Artists will reckon with their relationship to place, materiality and voice in a time of socio-ecological destabilization. Together participants will discuss the implications of a bioregional perspective alongside the function of art to inform what a grounded and meaningful art practice can entail today.

Course content includes: sustainability as a stand alone concept, the historical background and function of art, review of artists and concepts including practical strategies and resources, exposure to a range of natural art processes and mediums,circular systems, interbeing, establishing sustainable development needs and goals, developing alliances and an action plan.

All classes will be held on Sundays. The first four sessions will be held in January and February from 2-4pm EST, the fifth session in March with artists presentations, and the final session in May with roundtable discussions. Participants will create a project during the course.

Cost is $325 per member, scholarship available

"My inspirations are often drawn from evolving and decaying facets of nature and their spiritual imprints. I have been inspired by unnoticeable elements, such as wind, soil and water, as well as man- made artifacts such as industrial wastes and debris. I use such seemingly trivial objects in my installations to bring them back to life." tomokoabe.com


ACREAGE functions as a companion to Stephanie Garon's art, translating the visuals and experience of her work into language. In fact, as a part of her process, a number of poems in the collection were written during the creation of the pieces they share their names with. Many of the poems are also experimental, playing with the space and grammar to evoke and compliment what one would encounter at Garon's installations.
