Ready for our Youth Climate Summit this week? During the summit we will be featuring artists from around the globe who are creating works of art in response to our changing environment - here’s a preview:

Locally, Lauren Rosenthal McManus’s work invites us to contemplate our relationship with the river, thinking of it as a living, breathing, natural system that functions as an interconnected whole. Pictured is “Delaware River Anatomy,” a meticulously crafted paper map displayed at our center. By purposefully leaving out boundaries, names, and manmade structures, her work “gives priority to rivers” and to the important connections that exist in the landscape.

If you are a high school student interested in art and artists who work to educate, innovate, and express issues of climate change in a hope to inspire others, join us at our Youth Climate Summit this Wednesday and Thursday!
