ACA’s newest exhibit is "Integrated Cycles: Artists Respond to Our Changing Earth," curated by Emily Belz. The artists— Richard Alan Cohen, Cedric Harper, Shelby Meyerhoff, Ponnapa Prakkamakul and Stefanie Timmermann—invite viewers to consider topics ranging from climate change, to our interconnectedness to animal species, to how we form more purposeful relationships to landscapes and space.

This panel discussion will feature Belz and all five participating artists, as they discuss artwork presented in the exhibition, the themes addressed in their work and the connections these artists all shared through their diverse perspectives.

This event is free and open to the public and and we ask all attendees to RSVP here because of capacity limits.
