The Art Extension Service (AES) is a group of artists and creative sorts who love soils and love working with scientists as part of our professional practice. Recognizing the power of art to make abstract ideas visible and accessible, we partner with the Urban Soils Institute (USI) to design projects and structures that:
Educate the general public about the importance of urban soil
Engender stewardship of our soil and ecology
Create an interactive community of scientists, artists, and citizens
Help make soils education fun and accessible
Project: Soils is an initiative of the AES, designed to make potential artist and scientist collaborators visible to each other, and to help connect proposed projects with potential sites and funders.
