CCAI Nevada Neighbors Lecture Series

"Everything Is Land Use: Humans and the Common Ground in America" Illustrated Talk by Matthew Coolidge

Nevada Neighbors, the Capital City Arts Initiative's ongoing series of illustrated public talks, will host Matthew Coolidge, director of CLUI – The Center for Land Use Interpretation.

From Nevada’s location on the western edge of the Intermountain West in the center of the Great Basin, environmental issues speak to the heart of the state. A look at these issues through work created by scholars, environmental activists, and artists will provide new information and perspective on our delicate high desert environment.

Southern California-based CLUI has an experimental field station near Wendover in northeastern Nevada. Founded in 1994, CLUI takes a broadly interdisciplinary approach to the investigation of land use, drawing on the natural sciences, sociology, art, architecture, and history.

Mr. Coolidge is the author and editor of several books, including "Overlook: Exploring the Internal Fringes of America with CLUI", and "The Nevada Test Site: A Guide to the Nation's Nuclear Proving Ground."
