The Mobile Field Station is a national mobile art and ecology project created by artist Marion Wilson. Using a renovated RV (MLAB) as a drawing and botany lab, Wilson, in partnership with Dr. Robin Wall Kimmerer, expert bryologist and writer of “Gathering Moss: A Natural and Cultural History of Mosses,” has created a traveling classroom based on the study and appreciation of mosses. This mobile art and ecology project celebrates attentiveness to place, smallness, and indigenous ways of knowing, which Wilson believes to be ecological, spiritual, scientific, artistic, and (like art) restores wonder to viewing. MLAB: The Mobile Field Station is filled with moss species, macro and micro drawing stations, and engages the public in a full interactive art/botany experience.
MLAB is Made possible in support by Syracuse University School of Education, Humanities Center, and Pastabilities
