SciArt for Environmental Conservation at the National Academy of Sciences

Can art promote environmental conservation? Cultural Programs of the National Academy of Sciences (CPNAS) explores intersections of science and art (sciart) through exhibitions and public programs, including the popular D.C. Art Science Evening Rendezvous (DASER) discussion forum series. CPNAS staff member Alana Quinn highlights sciart for environmental conservation that has been presented at DASER, including the community-based work of Eve Mosher in New York City, Brandon Ballengée in the Gulf of Mexico, and Changwoo Ahn at George Mason University. Quinn will also speak about CPNAS’ art exhibitions that explore environmental issues including Diane Burko’s current exhibition looking at the effects of climate change on glaciers and reefs and Steve Miller’s recent exhibition on the impact of deforestation in the Amazon.
