Imagining the Planet: Arts & Environment

NOVMTPposterThe School of Global Environmental Sustainability will host a slightly different panel discussion in its Managing the Planet series at Avogadro’s Number, 605 S. Mason St.

Imagining the Planet, Dec. 10, 5-6:30 p.m., will feature CSU professors of art, English, and landscape architecture as well as conservation biology discuss the connection between art and the environment. What have the arts to offer us as we face our planet’s uncertain and troubled future? How can occupying the spaces between the arts and the sciences help us see, feel, think, and move forward?

Panelists include Erika Osborne, CSU Department of Art and Art History, and SoGES 2014-2015 Resident Fellow; Sue Ellen Campbell, CSU Department of English; Kurt Fausch, CSU Department of Fish, Wildlife and Conservation Biology and Elizabeth Hobbs, CSU Department of Horticulture and Landscape Architecture. The artwork on the event poster, “Global Message on Ecology,” was created by John Gravdahl, professor of graphic design in the Department of Art and Art History, using recycled cardstock.

The panel is free and open to the public.
