Art at Noon: Art and the Climate Crisis

Wednesday, September 23rd, 12:00 to 1:00 PM

Zoom address will be emailed upon registration


Although artists have been addressing climate change for nearly two decades, the pandemic of 2020 has reframed it as a parallel public health issue. This lecture will present a variety of multimedia and multimodal approaches that contemporary artists use to raise awareness and change our perceptions of human-induced environmental damage. Artists on the international stage will be highlighted, as well as those in PAFA’s collection including Diane Burko, Joan Jonas, Agnes Denes, and the Dufala brothers.

Art historian Cynthia Haveson Veloric is a researcher, writer, curator, and environmental advocate. She is a PhD candidate at the University of the Arts.
