A March 25th conversation between the curator, artists and St. Francis faculty will close Environmental Empathies, an interactive art exhibit that explores the connection between empathy and action around climate change.
The multi-media exhibit, which opened February 6th in St. Francis' Callahan Center Art Gallery, features film, photography, and other artistic works from ten New York City-based artists. It brings to life the current and anticipated effects of climate change on people, plants and wildlife, and invites visitor participation in an effort to help counteract individual apathy and hopelessness, prompt dialogue and to enrich the artistic creations displayed.
