Brandon Ballengée: “Bugs, Birds, and Bayous”
Longue Vue Welcomes Eco-artist and Biologist Brandon Ballengée for the Week
Wednesday, July 6, through Friday, July 8, 9:00 am – 3:00 pm

NEW ORLEANS – Dino-birds, slithering serpents, temperamental turtles, fast frogs, elegant insects! Come explore the faunal diversity at Longue Vue House and Gardens as Brandon Ballengée visits our interdisciplinary art and biology camp. Exploring the boundaries between art, science and technology, Ballengée creates multidisciplinary works out of information generated from ecological field trips and laboratory research. Since 1996, Ballengée has collaborated with numerous scientists, members of the public and students to conduct environment research and ecological artworks. A central focus of his primary scientific research has been the occurrence of developmental deformities and population declines among amphibians. Brandon has extensive experience in Environmental Education curriculum development and has worked as an Environmental Art Educator at the Hudson River Museum (Yonkers, NY) and the Educational Center for the Arts High School (New Haven, CT). Recent solo exhibitions of his work have been held at The Royal Institution of Great Britain (London, UK), Nowhere Gallery (Milan, Italy) and the Peabody Museum of Natural History at Yale University (New Haven, CT). Along with his numerous involvements in residency programs around the world, he was recently an artist in residence at the KHOJ International Artists Association in New Delhi, India.
