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.
