Patricia Johanson


Beginning in the 1960s, Patricia Johanson’s work has focused on combining art, ecology, and infrastructure into multi-functional public landscapes. Her projects in Dallas, San Francisco, Petaluma, California, Salt Lake City and Scranton, Pennsylvania incorporate municipal flood basins, sewers, water-treatment systems, flood control structures and restored wildlife habitats into public parks that are framed and made accessible by sculpture. From mine-scarred land to typical highway structures, Johanson creates designs where humans and nature can flourish.
