Campus-wide and Virtual Exhibit: The Art of Climate Change
The work of Chicago-based artist Alisa Singer, Environmental Graphiti is a series of digital paintings created to enhance public awareness of the science of climate change. Each of the artworks is derived from a chart, graph, map, word or number relating to key facts about climate change. Michigan Tech’s exhibit includes 23 pieces displayed at 10 locations across campus and virtually via the interactive campus map.
Environmental Graphiti exhibit sponsors include the Great Lakes Research Center; the Institute for Policy, Ethics and Culture; University Marketing and Communications, the departments of Civil and Environmental Engineering, Biological Sciences, Visual and Performing Arts, Humanities, Social Sciences, and Geological and Mining Engineering and Science; College of Forest Resources and Environmental Science; J.R. Van Pelt and John and Ruanne Opie Library; and the Rosza Center for Performing Arts. The exhibit runs through May 15.
Each piece in the campus exhibit is available for purchase. Proceeds will support student seed research grants to be announced in fall 2020. To purchase artwork, contact firstname.lastname@example.org. Artwork sales are subject to Michigan Sales Tax.
The Environmental Graphiti exhibit is one activity planned for the University’s annual World Water Day celebration. Other World Water Day activities are being moved to virtual delivery platforms. Updates and details will be posted on the Great Lakes Research Center’s World Water Day Events website.
