Sinopsis

Ive been an environmental journalist for many years on CBS Radio, Sirius Satellite Radio, and as publisher for the Environmental News Network. You might have heard podcasts I've produced for the Monterey Bay Aquarium, NOAA and the California Academy of Sciences. But this podcast is different because it's my own invention and very personal. The topics are much broader too -- cool stuff like urban design, art, innovations in technology and transportation, and the ideas focused on making cities smarter. I hope you enjoy the program.

  • Rene Magritte Exhibit at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art

    29/05/2018 Duración: 02min

    René Magritte The Fifth Season May 19–October 28, 2018 (Text from SFMOMA) René Magritte (1898–1967) was one of the most intriguing painters associated with Surrealism, but he did not fully find his voice until after breaking ties with the movement. This exhibition, the first to look exclusively at Magritte’s late career, examines his most important bodies of work from the 1940s through the 1960s, and shows how they marked a fundamental shift in painting from Modernism to our own time. Featuring more than 70 artworks in nine immersive, thematic galleries, René Magritte: The Fifth Season explores how Magritte balanced irony and conviction, philosophy and fantasy, to illuminate the gaps between what we see and what we know. Together, the works reveal Magritte as an artist acutely attuned to the paradoxes at work within reality, and an enduring champion of the role of mystery in life and art.

    21/05/2018 Duración: 03min

    John Muir Laws has dedicated his life to helping people become passionate about art and something he calls "Nature Journaling". From his website: "We live in a world of beauty and wonder. Train your mind to see deeply and with intentional curiosity, and the world will open before you. Keeping a journal of your observations, questions, and reflections will enrich your experiences and develop gratitude, reverence, and the skills of a naturalist. The goal of nature journaling is not to create a portfolio of pretty pictures but to develop a tool to help you see, wonder, and remember your experiences. You can learn to do this. You do not need to be an artist or a naturalist. These are skills you will develop as you go. The time to begin is now". https://johnmuirlaws.com
