Community engagement has been at the core of Ann's art practice since the early 1980s. This has taken the form of ecoliteracy and art programs, engaging her students in local communities and issues, and designing a community aspect to her ecoart installations. Here is a sampling of some of the projects she has initiated or contributed to over the last few years.
