The Merwin Conservancy Presents ALEXIS ROCKMAN in The Green Room

The Merwin Conservancy presents an intimate evening with renowned painter Alexis Rockman in the Green Room, an environmental and literary salon series that fosters a reverence for language, nature, and imagination in our community.

The Maui event will take place on Saturday, October 27th at 7pm in the McCoy Studio Theater at the Maui Arts & Cultural Center. Tickets are available now. (Note for O‘ahu residents: a Honolulu event will be held on October 24th - tickets on sale soon!)

Inspired by 19th-century landscape painting, science fiction film, and firsthand field study, Rockman’s paintings proffer a vision of the natural world that is equal parts fantasy and empirical fact.

He has exhibited extensively worldwide since 1985, having been featured in a number of solo museum exhibitions and is represented in many important public and private collections.

From 2009-2012, Rockman collaborated with director Ang Lee on the prize-winning film, "Life of Pi," serving as “inspirational artist” by preparing conceptual drawings to serve as visual reference. 

For more than two decades, the artist-cum-amateur naturalist has collected organic materials during extended travels to places including Tasmania, Madagascar, and Antarctica and made delicate field drawings of the things that live in each environment from the soil samples collected there, mixed with water and matte acrylic medium.

Courtyard reception to follow with dessert, beverages, book sales, and live musical entertainment. 

This evening is generously made possible by FIM Group with support from Atherton Family Foundation. All ticket sales benefit the non-profit Merwin Conservancy.

Tickets: $25 & $10/special student price w/ID (plus applicable fees).

Stage presentation to be followed by pop-up book fair and book signing with Alexis Rockman with live entertainment and refreshments.
