Multimedia artists Sibylle Szaggars Redford shared selections from her series “The Shape of Color & The Way of the Rain” at an April reception at the Institute attended by Salk supporters, trustees and invited guests. Wife of renowned actor and filmmaker Robert Redford–who featured the Salk Institute in last year’s Cathedrals of Culture documentary film project–Szaggars Redford exhibits her work throughout the world to raise awareness of humanity’s impact on the environment. The pieces, which were created by exposing pigment to rain, were displayed through May, with 30 percent of all sales generously donated to the Salk Institute.
