Julie Welch

ArtBridge, Board Secretary

Ecological Landscape Designer, Educator, Advisor, and Environmental Advocate Julie brings 16 years of experience in the art and design fields to her position on the ArtBridge Board of Directors. She has worked with a wide array of practitioners affiliated with modern and contemporary art through her work at the Museum of Modern Art and with environmental artists through her work as an ecological landscape designer and teacher.

Her work at MoMA deepened her belief in the vital importance of engagement with the arts as a way to make meaning of the world around us. MoMA’s Rising Currents: Projects for New York’s Waterfront, which explored regenerative landscape design solutions to address rising sea levels around New York City sparked Julie’s decision to obtain her Master’s degree in ecological landscape planning and design.

Since obtaining her MA from the Conway School, Julie has worked with interdisciplinary teams on projects for the Buckminster Fuller Institute, Cooper Union Institute for Sustainable Design, NYC Parks, and City Parks Foundation. As an instructor of sustainabledesign at Parsons New School and Program Director for SWIM Coalition, a clean water advocacy group, she has worked with several contemporary artists on public art projects throughout NYC that raise awareness of ecological challenges in the face of climate change.

In her work as an ecological landscape planner and designer, she has worked on regenerative design solutions with artists, writers, and designers for such projects as flood remediation for the City of Londonderry VT led by members of the renowned Michael Singer studio, and on a public Foodway in Concrete Plant Park in the Bronx.
