On Thursday, May 17, the Gershman Y will debut two environmental art exhibits in its galleries. From 6 – 8 pm, attend a panel discussion with several of the participating artists—all of whom have developed eco-art projects nationally and internationally. These artists believe in the importance of talking about the ideas embodied in their work.
The one collection is called Turn Here: Artists Promoting Environmental Awareness. It features artists who use signage and other graphic approaches as a strategy for promoting eco-awareness, including work by Xavier Cortada from his time in the North and South Poles.
The second grouping is titled History of the Future: Photographs from the Canary Project.
The Gershman Y sees this evening as a chance for fresh and meaningful discussion of environmental issues that impact our community. Even if you can’t attend opening reception, the exhibits run to Sunday, August 12.
