Biographical / Historical

Helen Mayer Harrison, born in 1927 in New York City, New York, graduated from Queens College in Flushing, New York, in 1948 with a BA in English. Prior to attending Queens College, Helen matriculated at Cornell University in Ithaca, New York and majored in Psychology (1943-1945). In 1948, she enrolled as a Doctoral Candidate at New York University but later withdrew from the PhD program. Helen received an MA in the Philosophy of Education from NYU in 1952. Helen was enrolled in the Human Behavior PhD program at United States International University (1968-1970) in San Diego, California, but withdrew from the program before the completion of her PhD. Helen studied art and painting in the late 1950s while living in Florence, Italy, with Newton Harrison, as well as additional graduate studies in anthropology, sociology, and social psychology at the New School for Social Research and the University of Pennsylvania and English literature at Brooklyn College.
Prior to becoming a full time artist and professor in the Visual Arts department at the University of California, San Diego, in the early 1970s, Helen held various positions in the field of education. While living in New York state, she worked as a permanent substitute teacher in New York City (1948-1949), a sixth grade English and Social Studies teacher at Mineola Public Schools (1949-1950) a high school English and Social Studies teacher at Newton High School in New York City (1950-1952), and an English teacher at Sewanhaka High School in Floral Park (1952-1953). While living in Florence, Helen was the Director of the International Nursery School (1959-1960). After moving to New Mexico, she worked as an English instructor at the University of New Mexico (1965-1967). Finally, before becoming a full time artist, Helen worked at the University of California, San Diego Extension from 1969 to 1972 as the Program Coordinator and Director of Education Programs. In addition to Helen’s career in education, she was the first New York Coordinator for the Women’s Strike for Peace in 1962. Helen also took time off to raise her four children spending 1953 to 1958 and 1960 to 1965 as a stay at home mother.
Newton Harrison, born in 1932 in Brooklyn, New York, graduated from the Yale University School of Art and Architecture in New Haven, Connecticut, in 1964 with a BFA and from Yale University Graduate School of Fine Arts in 1965 with an MFA. Newton also attended Antioch College (1950-1952) in Yellow Springs, Ohio, and the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts in Philadelphia (1952-1953, 1955-1957), where he received a certificate from the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts and won their traveling fellowship. Newton was drafted into the Korean War and served in the Army (1953-1955).
Newton knew he wanted to be an artist from a young age and immersed himself in art. At 14, he was a sculptor’s apprentice, working after school and during summer breaks. After the Army, Newton completed his studies in Pennsylvania and moved to Florence, Italy, with Helen and their two young children from 1957 to 1960 to study art. After living abroad, the Harrisons returned to the United States and lived in New York City’s lower east side. Newton conducted experimental workshops in painting for children at the University Settlement House, Sloane Neighborhood Center, and St. Augustine’s Chapel (1961-1962). He also taught art to at-risk youth at the Henry Street Settlement House (1962). While in graduate school at Yale University, Newton worked as a Teaching Assistant for an experimental workshop in environmental art and a color workshop (1964-1965). Afterwards, the Harrisons moved to Albuquerque, where Newton worked as an assistant professor at the University of New Mexico from 1965 to 1967. Newton and his family left New Mexico when he cofounded the Visual Arts department at the University of California, San Diego in 1967.
Prior to Newton and Helen’s collaboration, Newton exhibited in a variety of genres, media, and materials typical of many artists in the fifties and sixties. Newton began getting commissions and exhibiting in the mid-1950s. During this period, he made large scale figurative sculptures, cast in plaster, plastic, and bronze. Newton’s “Love Groups” are an example of this type of work. In the late 1950s, Newton moved away from sculpture and began creating field and figure-field relationships paintings. The late 1960s saw Newton working with sculpture again along with various technologically based works. An example of this type of work is the “Artificial Aurora Borealis,” a work comprised of five chambers that emit light. The work was commissioned by the Los Angeles County Museum for the Art and Technology Program and executed at the Jet Propulsion Laboratories in Pasadena, California. This work was a turning point in Newton’s art, as it introduced Newton to physics. The study of physics led him to research biological phenomena, which exposed Newton to ecological concerns. Thereafter, Newton decided to make these issues central to all future work.
At the same time Newton shifted his focus to ecological matters, Helen, a trained social scientist, discovered her lifelong interest in language, narration, storytelling, and the oral tradition aligned with her interest in art. Concepts in the areas of education, philosophy, social sciences, literature, and art coalesced, suggesting to her that the world was in the midst of an ongoing, worsening, but only partly visible social crisis. With this in mind, Helen quit her job at the University of California, San Diego Extension to become a full time artist and professor with her husband at the University of California, San Diego. They are both now retired from University California, San Diego and are currently research professors at University of California, Santa Cruz.
While Helen and Newton arrived at their conclusions through separate study, it was out of the idea of biological crisis that the Harrisons’ first theme was born: survival. Their first collaborative piece, a map charting extinct and endangered species, was part of the Furs and Feathers exhibition at the Crafts Museum in New York City, New York (1971). Afterwards, they decided to take all the resources available to them to make art about survival. Out of this grew the Harrisons’ "Survival Pieces," a multipart work began in 1971 with a focus on farming. For these early works, Newton was in charge of the installation, Helen worked on the performances, and both researched. Over time, the Harrisons’ work mode clarified and both assumed all roles of creating.
The Harrisons’ work explores the relationship between words and images through the use of maps, drawings, paintings, photomurals, and collages with a storytelling/performance component. Ecological concerns, survival, watershed restoration, urban renewal, agriculture, forestry, and other environmental issues remained the focal point of their work over the decades. Their visionary projects have led to governmental policy changes, as well as creating and expanding dialogue around previously unexplored issues, leading to practical implementations throughout the United States and Europe.
The Harrisons have used Ronald Feldman Fine Arts in New York City for their gallery representation since 1974.
Helen and Newton married in 1953 and had four children: Steven, Joshua, Gabriel, and Joy.

Scope and Contents

This subseries consists of correspondence, project descriptions, exhibition information, maps, photographic material, planning, notes, research, maps, and text. Originally “Survival Piece No. 10,” the work was commissioned by California State University, Long Beach for the exhibition Beyond the Artist’s Hand.

The story is told in excerpts from a series of letters written by journalist Hugo Reed to the Los Angeles Star in 1850. The Harrisons retold the story with commentary in the margins. The full name of this project is “Meditation on the Gabrielino, Whose Name for Themselves is No Longer Remembered, Although We Know That They Farmed With Fire and Fought Wars By Singing.” The subseries is arranged alphabetically.

Scope and Contents

This subseries consists of correspondence, project descriptions, exhibition information, maps, photographic material, posters, planning, notes, research, and text. The nine texts of the Sacramento Meditations are the revised version of the work commissioned by the Floating Museum (1976) and exhibited by the San Francisco Museum of Art (1977). This project examines water use practices in California. It includes eleven posters each beginning with “For instance…if…” and ending with “What if all irrigated farming isn’t necessary?” These were posted by the Harrisons, San Francisco Art Institute students, and others on street corners throughout San Francisco, as well as billboards saying “Water”; street graffiti written with chalk on the sidewalks; video, radio and TV spots; and other performances. Another name used for this project is “Meditations on the Sacramento River, the Delta, and the Bays at San Francisco.” The subseries is arranged alphabetically.

Subseries 15. Baltimore Promenade 1981

Scope and Contents

This subseries consists of contact information, correspondence, project descriptions, exhibition information, maps, photographic material, planning, notes, press, proposals, publicity, research, a scrapbook, and text. This work was initiated by the Maryland Institute and supported by the National Endowment for the Arts, various city and civic agencies, and the office of the then mayor of Baltimore. The Harrisons were originally invited to comment on the problematic design of inner city housing, but once in Baltimore, they perceived the city to be divided. The Harrisons proposed reconnecting the city by creating north-south and east-west promenades that intersected at the city’s harbor. The subseries is arranged alphabetically.

Subseries 21. Pasadena 1969-1998

Scope and Contents

This subseries consists of contracts and agreements, correspondence, project descriptions, exhibition information, meeting documentation, printed material, financial records, research, reports, photographic material, press, maps, National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) grant material, posters, drawings, and text documenting three projects of the Harrisons’ at the Devil’s Gate Dam in Pasadena, California: “Arroyo Seco Release: A Proposal for Pasadena” (1985), “Devil’s Gate: A Refuge for Pasadena” (1987), and “From the Air: A String of Emeralds” (1991).
“Arroyo Seco Release: A Proposal for Pasadena” was commissioned by the Baxter Art Gallery at Cal Tech and supported by the Pasadena Art Alliance and other local agencies. It was initiated by the Western Regional Association of the Garden Clubs of America. The Lower Arroyo Seco, a ten foot deep flood control channel, had destroyed the area’s ecology. The Harrisons proposed a new model to separate the process of flood control from the destruction of rivers. Before any work could be started, Devil’s Gate Dam had to be repaired.
“Devils Gate: A Refuge for Pasadena,” also called “Devil’s Gate Transformation: A Refugia for Pasadena,” addressed the repair work to be done to the dam in order to move forward with “Arroyo Seco Release.” The work was organized by a consortium of groups from Pasadena and supported by planning grants from the NEA and local groups.
“From the Air: A String of Emeralds” proposed a new stream, a new lake, a design for a new woodland riparian habitat, and a new percolation basin configuration to recharge the Raymond Basin aquafer to create a refuge for wildlife. Master planners, Bob Takata and Associates were chosen by the city to carry forward the Harrisons’ conceptual design. The Harrisons continued to work with Takata throughout the master planning phase. The end result was the Hahamongna Watershed Park.

Subseries 31. Sava River 1989

Language of Material: Much of the material in this subseries is in English, but also includes Serbo-Croatian, Serbian, Croatian, German, and Japanese.

Scope and Contents

This subseries consists of draft catalogs, catalogs, contact information, correspondence, project descriptions, exhibition information, planning, notes, press, publicity, research, maps, and text documenting the Harrisons’ proposal to transform the Sava River, and the surrounding area, from its source above Ljubjana to its outfall into the Danube River at Belgrade into a nature corridor. The Harrisons were invited by Hartmut Ern of the European Nature Heritage Trust to create this nature reserve in the ecologically undisturbed area that had once been no man’s land at the border between the former Austro-Hungarian and Ottoman Empires. The Harrisons’ work was interrupted by the start of the Croatian War of Independence in 1991. The work was accepted as the Concept of Choice by the Croatian Departments of Water and Environment (1990) and won 2nd prize at Artec ’91: The Second International Biennale in Nagoya, Japan (1991-1992). The project is also referred to as “Atempause: Breathing Space for the Sava River” and “Atempause für den Save Fluss.” The subseries is arranged alphabetically.

Subseries 38. Bauhaus Dessau 1992-1995

Language of Material: The materials in this subseries are in English and German.

Scope and Contents

This subseries consists of contracts and agreements, general information, schedule and programming information about the Bauhaus Dessau, correspondence, project descriptions, photographic material, planning, notes, research, and text. Prior to their work on the Mulde River and Bitterfeld, Germany, the Harrisons worked on a project for the Elbe watershed in Bohemia and Czechoslovakia, which is directly linked to their work at the Bauhaus Dessau.
The proposal, “Ruminations on the Open Pit Mines at Bitterfeld” (1992), was created by the Harrisons at a Bauhaus Dessau workshop coordinated by the Chamber of Architects of Hessen. The workshop asked the attendees what to do with the 24 square kilometer brown coal excavations at Bitterfeld. Attendees included Ennert Wehberg (landscape architect), Carlo Weber (architect), Lalo Nicolic (architect and President of the Chamber), Rolf Toyka (Director of Advanced Education in Architecture for the Chamber of Architects at Hessen), other architects, and students. Proceedings of the symposium, published by Prestel Press, Bitterfeld: Braunkohlebrachen – Probleme, Chancen, Visionen, won one of two 2nd place prizes (no first place prizes were given out) from the Ministry of the Ecology of Sachsen-Anhart and several Art/Natur Organizations.
The Bitterfeld work became the basis for the Harrisons’ Mulde proposal: “The Muldeaue: The First Design for an Eco-Urban Edge for the Mulde River from the Muldestausee to the Elbe” (1993). In this work, the Harrisons, proposed a redesign between the urban and natural forms of the Muldeaue.
Both of these projects, done around the same time at the Bauhaus Dessau, are part of a larger concept for reclaiming pit mines in Bitterfeld, Germany; Northern Bohemia; and Czechoslovakia.
The subseries is arranged alphabetically.

Subseries 45. Green Heart Vision 1993-1995, 1999-2000

Language of Material: The materials in this subseries are in English, Dutch, Danish, and German.

Scope and Contents

This subseries consists of catalogs, contact information, contracts and agreements, correspondence, project descriptions, designs, exhibition information, financial records, lectures, presentations, maps, meeting information, photographic material, planning, notes, press, proposals, research, schedules, and text. The Harrisons were invited by the Cultural Council of South Holland to consider the Green Heart of Holland, an area of lowland Holland slowly being reclaimed by the sea. It is a region of dikes, canals, farms, fields, and small villages surrounded by a ring of cities: Amsterdam, Rotterdam, and Utrecht that form the Randstad (Rim City): Amsterdam, Rotterdam, and Utrecht. At the time of this project, the Green Heart was facing expanding urban areas, as well as internal development. Both of which threatened its existence. The Harrisons, using a series of images (ceramic tiles, maps, drawings, and videos) and discourse proposed a new vision for the Green Heart and the Randstad. The full name of this project is “A Vision for the Green Heart of Holland.” The subseries is arranged alphabetically.

Subseries 46. Hannover 2000 1993-2000

Language of Material: The materials in this subseries are in English and German.

Scope and Contents

This subseries consists of material about German publishing company Campus Verlag, contracts and agreements, correspondence, proposals, writings, drafts, planning, and notes, as well as information about Expo 2000, the World’s Fair in Hannover, Germany, from June 1, 2000 to October 31, 2000. The Harrisons referred to this project as Hannover 2000 and not Expo 2000. The Harrisons and other artists were invited to do large scale ecological and symbolic works for Expo 2000’s Art and Nature program with the intention that their work would support a series of lectures. This program was run by Thomas Sprengel of Kultur Konzept Sprengel. The Harrisons created three works to be displayed in the Munich Area at Expo 2000: “Greenhouse Europe,” “Project Europe,” and “Three Cut Meadow.” “Project Europe” is an early incarnation of “Peninsula Europe” and “Three Cut Meadow” directly relates to “Future Garden.” As part of their participation in the Art and Nature program, the Harrisons wrote Grüne Landschaften Vision: Die Welt als Garten, published by Campus Verlag as part of the Expo 2000 book series. There is a draft of this publication in this subseries. This subseries also houses numerous drafts of “Peninsula Europe as a Twenty-First Century Garden: Bringing Forth a New Space of Mind” commissioned by Schweisfurth Foundation. The subseries is arranged alphabetically.

Scope and Contents

This subseries consists of correspondence, meeting minutes, and the Harrisons’ draft report “A Grand Park and Meander for UCSD.” For this project, the Harrisons proposed to reverse the ecological and physical fragmentation of the University of California, San Diego (UCSD) campus by creating a “Meander” to allow people to traverse the campus with the option of walking near a park. The subseries is arranged chronologically.

Subseries 50. Karl-Marx-Allee 1994-1995

Scope and Contents

This subseries consists of project descriptions, photographic material, planning, notes, press, research, schedules, and text. The Harrisons were invited by the Chamber of Architects of Hessen and the architects of Berlin to be on one of six teams at a charrette to propose the redevelopment of the Karl-Marx-Allee in Berlin, Germany. The Harrisons proposed taking the large public spaces and transforming them into new urban green spaces based on ecological and not horticultural principles. The full title of this work “On Seeing Karl-Marx-Allee as Centering a Unique Neighborhood within the First Urban Forest.” The subseries is arranged alphabetically.

Subseries 51. California Wash 1989-1997

Scope and Contents

This subseries consists of contact information, contracts and agreements, correspondence, project descriptions, designs, drawings, blueprints, financial records, meeting information, photographic material, planning, notes, architectural surveys, press, vendor information, proposals, schedules, and text. At the request of the Director of the Santa Monica Arts Commission, the Harrisons entered an international competition for the terminus of Pico Boulevard where it meets the Santa Monica Beach Promenade. The Harrisons won the competition, and, in association with Spurlock-Porrier (landscape architects), began work on phase one. There were many more phases, and the work was completed in 1996. “California Wash” is a reflection of the path rain water took from the mountains to the coast before city development. The rain water washed down from the Hollywood Hills and carried earth, rocks, seeds, and plants that created the natural landscape as the water washed out to sea. After city development and an installation of a storm drain, the rain water no longer followed its natural path. Using a serpentine path and native plants, the Harrisons evoked the natural state of this area. The subseries is arranged alphabetically.

Subseries 55. Peninsula Europe 1999-2007

Language of Material: The materials in this subseries are in English and German. Some material in French, Hebrew, and Dutch.

Scope and Contents

This subseries consists of contact information, contracts and agreements, correspondence, exhibition information, financial records, drawings, project descriptions, press, publicity, meeting information, planning, notes, catalogs, maps, proposals, photographic material, research, schedules, and text, as well as a film sketch done with Bruce Erickson titled “The Heartland Watersheds of Peninsula Europe,” which is derived from the Harrisons’ book, Grüne Landschaften Vision: Die Welt als Garten, published by Campus Verlag as part of the Expo 2000 book series. Funded by Culture 2000 of the European Union, Deutsche Bundes Umwelt Stiftung (the education branch of the Nature Protection Agency of the German Government), Schweisfurth Foundation of Munich, and BUGA 2001 at Potsdam, this project has been exhibited extensively. Peninsula Europe argued that a unique pattern emerged from the European landscape when geophysical Europe is viewed as a peninsula, surrounded by water on three sides with its eastern boundary formed by the Vistula and Dnestr Rivers as they descend from the Carpathians to the wetlands of the Russian plain. The Harrisons organized much of their Peninsula Europe material based on geographic location, which has been maintained as much as possible. The locations are: Aachen, Germany; Berlin, Germany; Brussels, Belgium; Denmark; France; Holland; Norway; Potsdam, Germany; and Prague, Czech Republic. The project is also titled “Peninsula Europe: The High Grounds.” The subseries is arranged alphabetically.

Subseries 57. Matese Project 2002-2005

Language of Material: The materials in this subseries are in English and Italian.

Scope and Contents

This subseries consists of contracts and agreements, correspondence, project descriptions, designs, exhibition information, financial records, maps, photographic material, research, text, and travel information. It includes two Italian projects worked on by the Harrisons: Matese and Salerno. The Harrisons kept these two projects housed together in their files.
In 2002, the Harrisons participated in a competition in Salerno where they designed a park and an ecological walk. Their proposal was not selected, but, while in Salerno, they met architect Claudio Calabritto. In 2005, Calabritto invited the Harrisons to join an EU grant for the Apennines in Matese Park, also known as "Villaggio dell’Arte" and "Paesesaggio Project." This project sought to revitalize some of the villages in the Matese Park Area. The subseries is arranged alphabetically.

Subseries 59. Braddock 2003-2005

Scope and Contents

This subseries consists of contact information, contracts and agreements, correspondence, maps, designs, conference material, photographic material, planning, notes, proposals, and research. The Harrisons were invited to Braddock, Pennsylvania, by Carnegie Mellon University’s Institute for Creative Inquiry. Braddock is an economically depressed former steel town on the Monongahela River next to Pittsburgh. The Harrisons designed a rainwater catchment system using the city’s sewers, water percolation, and gardens (urban parks) to alleviate the river’s sewage problem by reducing the overflow. In this design, the collected water would slowly make its way back to the river in a purified form via sponge phenomenon. The work is called “Fecal Matters: A Proposal for Braddock, North Braddock, and the Lands Above.” As part of this project, the Harrisons attended the Monongahela Conferences organized by colleague Tim Collins. The subseries is arranged alphabetically.

Scope and Contents

This subseries consists of contact information, correspondence, project descriptions, travel information, planning, notes, research, maps, and text, as well as material about the Rose Hulman Institute of Technology (RHIT) and Saint Mary-of-the-Woods. The Harrisons first became involved with Terre Haute, Indiana, in 1992 through an invitation to discuss a project with Indiana State University. The project was not completed, but they met researcher Steve Letsinger. In 2007, Letsinger, working as the art curator at RHIT, invited the Harrisons to participate in a conference and to study the Wabash River. This project is also named “Terre Haute: The First City in the History of Cities” and “Wabash River Project: A Floodplain Transformation for Terre Haute.” The subseries is arranged alphabetically.

Subseries 68. Traunstein 2006

Language of Material: The materials in this subseries are in English and German.

Scope and Contents

This subseries consists of correspondence, financial records, proposals, research, and a written summary of the Harrisons’ visit by Martin Schneider-Jacoby. The Harrisons were originally invited to Traunstein, north of Munich in Bavaria, to study flood control issues at the Traun Drain Basin (Einzugsgebiet Traun). Using the concept of the “Stability Domain,” the Harrisons expanded their view to include the entire drain basin. The concept examines the European Peninsula from the high ground downward, as an extremely complex, interlocked, mutually influencing system of watersheds. The full title of this project is “The Traunstein Drain Basin: Toward Becoming a Domain of Stability.” The subseries is arranged alphabetically.
