About the Event

Stockinger was a 2019 Cedar Creek Artist in Residence at the famous site for ecological research. She created a series of quilts inspired by the unique history of the field station including the story of Eleanor Lindeman, the wife of Raymond Lindeman whose discovery about how energy flows through aquatic ecosystems set the state for modern ecology. Get a preview of the work from this recent story.

Stockinger will talk about her approach to the project and the stories behind each quilt. She’ll also answer questions about her sources of inspiration and her creative choices. Cedar Creek Education and Community Engagement Coordinator Caitlin Barale Potter will serve as moderator and provide additional background about the long-term research represented in several of Stockinger’s quilts.
