September Dinner Meeting 2014

 Packaging the Anthropocene

Speaker: William L. Fox

The great thing about project management is that it applies everywhere!   As the Director of the Center for Art + Environment at the Nevada Museum of Art, Bill Fox’s responsibilities include working with artists to prepare and install environmental art exhibits that educate and delight those who visit the museum.  In case you are wondering, “Anthropocene” is a proposed scientific term that refers to the present geological epoch during which humanity has begun to have a significant impact on the environment.  Bill Fox works with artists around the world to collect and install their projects that picture, interpret, and attempt to deal with global change. He will describe his experiences with various environmental projects including fog catching in the Atacama Desert of Chile, preventing erosion in the American Southwest, and preserving ancient forests in Australia.In addition to learning about project management as applied to art exhibitions, you will also see some amazing photos and learn about global change.

William L. Fox is Director of the Center for Art + Environment at the Nevada Museum of Art in Reno, Nevada, and has variously been called an art critic, science writer, and cultural geographer. He has published fifteen books on cognition and landscape, numerous essays in art monographs, magazines and journals, and fifteen collections of poetry. He has researched and written books set in the Antarctic, the Arctic, and the deserts of Chile, Australia, and the United States. He is a fellow of both the Royal Geographical Society and Explorers Club, and recipient of fellowships from the Guggenheim Foundation, National Endowment for the Humanities, and National Science Foundation. He has been a visiting scholar at the Getty Research Institute, Clark Art Institute, the Australian National University, and National Museum of Australia, and has twice been a Lannan Writer-in-Residence.

Around Northern Nevada

What's Happening In Carson City?  

PMI-NNV Chapter wants to ensure we are giving value to our members throughout all the regions of Northern Nevada. 

Carson City

PMI-NNV has held roundtable lunch meetings for the last two years in Carson City with high attendance.  Due to recent low attendance, we have put these lunch meetings on hold.  PMI-NNV is currently looking for a representative to look into how to revitatlize the PMI-NNV presence in Carson City.  What is the magic formula (ie networking sessions, breakfast meetings, lunch meetings, or dinner meetings)?
