Blane De St. Croix at work on a landscape.

Blane De St. Croix is a sculptor who works with geopolitical landscapes that serve as flashpoints for discussion about the far-reaching social implications of climate change and contested borders. His collaborative, research-based practice bridges the fields of visual art, cultural geography and environmental activism; aesthetics and social justice are given equal weight in his work. Recent projects have taken De St. Croix to the Svalbard Archipelago, the Gobi Desert, the Mexican-American border, and the wetlands surrounding New Orleans. His work has been exhibited internationally at venues including the Kathmandu International Triennial, Nepal; Smack Mellon, Brooklyn; Gasworks Gallery, London; Socrates Sculpture Park, Long Island City; The Asia Society, Houston; and his gallery, Fredericks & Freiser, New York.
Free for Bruce Museum members, and non-members.
