Lunch & Learn: Melting: Marietta Patricia Leis and David E. Vogel
Wednesday, July 6, 2016 - 12:00pm - 1:00pm
Marietta Patricia Leis and David Vogel are quietly eloquent activists. They recently traveled to the Antarctica aboard a Russian research icebreaker under strict conservation guidelines established to allow visitors to observe but not disturb the pristine wilderness. The artists hope that if people are drawn to the beauty of their art from the expedition they will become acutely aware of the fragile future of Antarctica and its natural inhabitants.
