Leave a comment

The Foundation, Koehnline Museum, and Division of Science and Health Careers are excited to present the artwork of Alisa Singer in an exhibit – Environmental Graphiti: The Art of Climate Change. Please find a link to her website here. The artwork has been featured around the country and installed at many other prominent universities and galleries around the area such as DePaul, UIC, Loyola, Northwestern, and more.

Artist Alisa Singer’s digital paintings, printed on metal and derived from graphs, charts, and other scientific data, use contemporary abstract art to challenge and expand the way we think about climate change. The works will be on display in the Lee Center, First Floor Lobby from January 25-February 25, 2017. Please join us and share widely!

We’d like to make you aware of a couple of events on campus should you be interested in joining or encouraging students to participate:


Public Reception with the Artist

Wednesday January 25, 11:00am-1:00pm

First Floor Lobby, Lee Center, Des Plaines Campus

Art will also be available for sale*.


Panel Discussion

Wednesday, February 1 from 11:00am – 12:15 pm
TenHoeve Center, Room 1610, Des Plaines Campus

Panelists include:
Paul Gulezian, Assistant Professor, Biology
Marian Staats, Professor, English
Tom Bowen, Professor, Philosophy
Wharton Sinkler, Des Plaines chapter of Citizens Climate Lobby

Panelists will analyze the imagery through a holistic lens of science, ethics, literature, and environmental and consumer policy/law. The dialogue will revolve around the questions of why and how climate change is happening … and what we can do about it.

This event is sponsored by the Koehnline Museum, Oakton Educational Foundation, and the Division of Science and Health Careers.

* Alisa has generously offered to sell the art to benefit the Foundation. She also sells printed posters or cards with the artwork on it. If you know of a student organization that would be interested in helping us work a table to sell these cards, please let me know.
