Healing Places Through Creative Action

Artist Jennifer Chenoweth makes contemporary art in any material that fits the idea, from drawings to large sculpture to interactive collaborative projects. Her recent project the XYZ Atlas mapped how we experience belonging and culminated in a TEDMED talk released in 2018. She now curates the Oakwood Cemetery Chapel in Austin, Texas to consider the purpose of our lives in the context of a historic cemetery.

This year’s Summit theme speaks directly to pandemic recovery and brighter days ahead for our communities, river recovery as St. Louis River Area of Concern work progresses, and the transformative work of understanding and addressing climate change. The 2022 Summit main program will be hosted virtually. Optional in-person elements include a poster session, field trips, and a River Talk. Register for the Summit at lakesuperiornerr.org/summit
