Alexis Rockman: East End Field Drawings explores the intersections among art, science, and history. For more than twenty years, Rockman has traveled throughout the world, collaborating with scientists and field researchers to see, experience, and learn about a region's ecology as inspirations for his drawings. The ninety-three drawings in this exhibition, created throughout eastern Long Island, depict the flora and fauna of each site rendered in organic material the artist collected there.&
