Third Coast Disrupted: Artists + Scientists on Climate

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 here in the Chicago area. Their conversation has 

inspired newly commissioned artworks.

This leads to more talk about climate change. Then an art exhibition 

and special programs, prompting even more dialogue.

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

Third Coast Disrupted is partially 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.

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