ARTIST IN RESIDENCE  JUNE.jpg

SYMPOSIUM
Saving the Planet: Art & Environmentalism
Phil Irish, Naomi White, & Madera Rogers-Henry
Thursday, 13 June 2024, 12:45-1:45PM
New Orleans Museum of Art

"New Orleans is on the frontlines of the climate emergency, as dramatic sea
level rise exacerbates the risk of flooding in the low-lying hurricane-prone
city – in addition to soaring temperatures, severe drought and super fog
events from surrounding marsh fires that caused misery in 2023," The
Guardian reported in November 2023. Science has the capacity to tell us how
to care for the planet, but those solutions are meaningless if humanity
doesn't care enough to evolve and change. A 2023 study by the Pew Research
Center found the health and wellbeing of our planet to be a primary concern
of a majority of American adults and yet that same study showed significant
political disagreement about how to address the issue. The complex social,
political, and economic dynamics that inform our discourse around the
environment can often leave one feeling confused and powerless. Art is a
unique technology that can distill complexity into simple human gestures
that, when experienced, facilitate a deeper understanding of our world,
perhaps one that can lead to a greater sense of agency around environmental
issues. In this panel, artists will speak about how to engage viewers around
environmental issues.

Cormorant Garamond is a classic font with a modern twist. It's easy to read on screens of every shape and size, and perfect for long blocks of text.
