Rob Gorski is a New York City based adventurer and conservationist. He is also the co-founder and owner of Rabbit Island, a 91 acre forested island in Lake Superior three miles east of Michigan’s Keweenaw Peninsula. Rabbit Island has been preserved as a wilderness area in perpetuity, and plays host to a diverse selection of international artists in residence each summer. Rob will be discussing the project's roots in New York City as well as the strong historical connection between urban centers and wilderness preservation. Wilderness, after all, is a very civilized idea.
