Artist's Choice: Art + Science

  • Institute for Contemporary Art at VCU 601 West Broad Street Richmond, VA, 23220 United States (map)

VCU Photo Film Professor and Declaration Artist Jon-Phillip Sheridan presents Art + Science, a conversation about adapting to climate change on a local level. How can we make our community healthier? How can we rectify social environmental injustice? What changes can be made to zoning to prevent food deserts, hotter areas, and air pollution concentration? Urban farm activist Duron Chavis, bioengineer Stephen Fong, forest ecologist Chris Gough, and sustainability manager Alicia Zatcoff join Jon to explore green urbanism and grassroots strategies. Audience members will receive native plant seed packets courtesy of Enrichmond Foundation. Free snacks and cash bar at Ellwood Thompson's Cafe at the ICA!
