Climate Change: A Panel Discussion

At the Noyes Museum of Art of Stockton University
Oceanville, NJ

6:30 – 7:30 pm

Regular admission; Members – Free
FREE for Stockton Students, Faculty and Staff

Five distinguished panelists will discuss climate change. Organized by artist Laura Petrovich-Cheney and featuring artist Diane Burko as moderator. The catalyst for the discussion is the Noyes Museum’s exhibition Frozen Earth: Images from the Arctic Circle.

Featuring the works of several artists from a fall 2013 Arctic Circle expedition, Frozen Earth offers a glimpse into how the changing environment of the northern extremes of our planet inspired artists to explore central issues of our time. The intent is to expand the dialogue on climate change and to create impactful conversations that not only include the art community, but the science and literary communities as well.

Panelists include:
Michael Lemonick, covered science and the environment for TIME magazine for nearly 21 years, where he wrote more than 50 cover stories, and has also written for Discover, Scientific American, Wired, New Scientist, The Washington Post and National Geographic.
