Third Coast Disrupted: Artists + Scientists on Climate

Virtual tour

A Climate for Conversation

It started with a convergence of cutting-edge artists and scientists. 

Gathering and talking for a year to explore climate change impacts and

solutions happening in the Chicago area. Their conversation 

inspired new artworks -- leading to more talk about climate change.

This builds momentum. This forges action. This is Third Coast Disrupted.

Third Coast Disrupted was created through a collaboration between Columbia College Chicago, DePaul University's Institute for Nature and Culture, and Terracom.


It is partly supported by a grant from the Illinois Arts Council Agency and the Illinois Science & Energy Innovation Foundation, with additional support from Keith Giles and Christine Skolnik; Openlands; The Nature Conservancy; Clare Butterfield and Edward Maldonado; Patrick and Laura Clark; Debra Shore; Greenleaf Advisors, LLC; The Fogelson Family Foundation; and the Keller Science Action Center, Field Museum.
