2010 Edelman Lecture: Alan M. Kapuler

Molecular biologist and public domain plant breeder Alan M. Kapuler Ph.D. delivers the 2010 Edelman Lecture, “Ecosanity: New Discoveries About Life.”

For the 2010 Alfred Edelman Lecture, PNCA welcomes Alan Kapuler Ph.D., Public Domain Plant Breeder and Molecular Biologist, President of Peace Seeds, and Retired Research Director and Co-Founder of Seeds of Change. Kapuler — who along with his wife and three daughters breeds plants and sells seeds through his farm-based business Peace Seeds — is considered by many to be the founding father of the organic seed movement. He has been saving seeds and breeding plants for over 30 years from his farm in Corvallis, Oregon. The title of his lecture is Ecosanity: Ongoing Discoveries About Life.

When the late Portland architect and photographer, Alfred Edelman, taught three-dimensional design at PNCA he challenged his students to consider the principles of engineering, kinetics, physics and other subjects seemingly dissimilar to art. In doing so he brought the outside world into his classroom. Founded by Carol Edelman, the Alfred Edelman Lecture was created to enhance the students understanding of the visual world by presenting timeless and/or unique ways to examine and manipulate three-dimensional space; and to be a catalyst for lively discussions in the classroom at PNCA.
