“Dissolve” explores how artists perceive what it means to change from one form to another such as the physical dissolution of light, water, distance, and geographic borders. SDA Member Linda Gass was invited to create one of the two new commissions for the exhibition. Her textile and sound installation, “When we listen to the watershed…” addresses the changing Santa Ana River Watershed. She collaborated with Valerie Olson, PhD, professor in anthropology at UC Irvine, in the development of this new work informed by Olson’s research.
