David Buckley Borden is an artist and landscape architect whose work explores ecological systems and how they are impacted by humans. He will collaborate with the Penn State Abington community to champion a cultural ecology supported by the arts and sciences. His work will be installed outdoors in the park-like setting of the Abington campus.
The Penn State Abington committee is led by Yvonne Love (Associate Professor of Art) and H. John Tompson (Assistant Teaching Professor of Art & Gallery Director). They have been working alongside committee members Les Murray (Associate Professor of Biology), Jake Benfield (Associate Professor of Psychology), Moira Baylson (Director, Office of Strategic Communications & Community Engagement), Delia Tash (Librarian), Alexis Donahue (Assistant Director of Business Services), and several Penn State Abington students.
