Students from Honors College Gateway sections 3 and 4 present “public art experiences designed to promote awareness of Environmental Justice,” on display in the Gleeson Library lobby until December 20. Come interact and join the discussion.
The theme for the Gateway classes this year is “Voices for Environmental Justice.” Professor Christine Young and her sections (03 and 04 Fall 2021) used an arts lens to examine issues related to environmental justice.
Professor Young described the course as:
“Drawing upon the four pillars of the Honors College – Liberal Arts foundations, interdisciplinary inquiry, global perspectives, and experiential engagement – we will spend the year in collaborative engagement on how to promote sustainable policies and diverse perspectives that both protect nature and care for the most vulnerable.”
The classes explored topics such as climate anxiety, land art and nearby nature in the Panhandle, activism and issues in music, visual arts, and television, and sustainable fashion.
The final project brought these ideas together in creating physical and virtual experiences to evoke emotion and provoke discussion.
Some of the projects are on display in Gleeson Library through the end of this week. QR codes are available for the virtual projects. Zines will become part of Gleeson’s Zine Collection.
