Panel Discussion: The Water is Rising

THU, OCT 25
6:30-8PM

FREE

Join exhibiting artist Julie Heffernan, Dr. Michelle Covi, Assistant Professor of Practice in the Ocean, Earth and Atmospheric Sciences Department at Old Dominion University and Tim Cole, Virginia Beach City Public Schools’ Sustainability Officer for a conversation about innovation in the face of climate change in conjunction with our current exhibition When the Water Rises: Recent Painting by Julie Heffernan.

Heffernan’s recent paintings create alternative habitats in response to environmental disaster and planetary excess. With rising waters, she imagines worlds in trees or on rafts in which undulating mattresses, tree boughs, and road signs guide the journey.
