Making Engaged Art:  Response and Intervention on Climate Change

The ecological and cultural implications of climate change served as a basis for the examination and creation of socially engaged art.  Part seminar and part experimental field lab, this course included a number of guest speakers from various disciplines who brought an array of perspectives on climate change to serve as a springboard for discussion.  Students’ projects responded to what they learned about the issue of climate change in a ways that both grew out of and expanded their individual art practice.   This course culminated in and exhibit at IU’s SoFA Gallery titled, All Points Bulletin: Interventions on Climate Change.
