a one-night group exhibition featuring the work of 20 artists installed in storage units on 
the banks of the Gowanus Canal; and on the advent of Gowanus Open Studios in October, Gowanus Night Heron: Case Study, which featured the creative reimagining of small acrylic boxes by 28 artists.

Background
Bonnie worked for 15 years as a print and exhibition designer, working for notable NYC institutions including The Museum of Modern Art and Ralph Appelbaum Associates. In 2009 she followed the white blazes for 1,685 miles on the Appalachian Trail, and continued on that path upon her return to NYC, trading her Schaedler Precision Rules for Peterson's Field Guides and embarking on a career in environmental education. Practical experience with NYSDEC, Audubon NY, and others--coupled with a MS in Ecological Teaching and Learning--prepared Bonnie for her current role as a Director at NYC Parks.

In 2016 she resumed regular studio practice and has not stopped.
