A fundraising event for CFROG:
Eco-Art Can Reveal Unique Climate Change Solutions
Eco-art focused on the natural world can help us understand the personal and social impacts of human damage to the planet, particularly that caused by anthropomorphic climate change. The most valuable artists in this regard are those that help us move beyond the worry and fret we may feel but not acknowledge about the ecological disaster we continue to cause and offer clues about unique ways to solve it. Through this power point presentation, Prof. Chianese will invite the audience to discuss and interrogate works of art, often enigmatic ones, which can prompt new thinking about our environmental dilemma.
This will be a power point discussion with audience participation.
Robert Chianese, Ph. D. is a retired CSU Northridge English professor, with 25 years experience working with scientists and ecologists in the American Association for the Advancement of Science, Pacific Division, and a columnist for American Scientist magazine. His current essay shows the impact on desert tortoises of alternative energy installations. https://www.americanscientist.org/article/rearranging-the-planet-to-save-it
