artists respond to climate change

Among artists currently focusing on climate change and its threats to biodiversity and other aspects of both the natural and cultural world are a Wisconsin group, the Wisconsin Art Therapy Association, in a new exhibit.

The Wisconsin Art Therapy Association—sponsored Global Warming Exhibit had its first showing in September, during three weeks at Edgewood College in Madison. The twenty-seven pieces in the exhibit then traveled to Riveredge Nature Center near Newburg, and then to Alverno College in Milwaukee. The exhibit is now on display at Marian College in Fond du Lac. The exhibit will be able to be viewed from February 11th through February 29th in the college's Dorcas Chapel as well as in the lobby of the Administration Building. See more about the Wisconsin Art Therapy Association and this exhibit here, and a link to a map and directions to Marian College, here. The opening reception will be held on Tuesday, February 12th, from 3:00 to 6:00 PM. Call Marian College for more information.
