Wednesday, March 14, 2018 - 2:00pm

Orange Grove Bistro

 Robert Chianese, Professor Emeritus, will be leading a talk entitled “Eco-Art Can Reveal Unique Climate Change Solutions” on March 14th at the Orange Grove Bistro.

Eco-Art focused on the natural world can help us understand the personal and social impacts of human damage to the planet, particularly that caused by anthropogenic climate change. The strongest eco-artists move us beyond worries about the Earth by offering clues for ways to repair the loss. Robert Chianese (Professor Emeritus, English), using videos and discussion, will lead a close examination of works by artists who challenge us to understand their works as sources of insight into the destruction and renovation of our physical world.
