Title: Art & Environment at the Wexner Center for the Arts
Are you eco-conscious and interested in contemporary art? Are you in 11th or 12th grade and do you want to pursue your independent interests on campus at The Ohio State University? Think about coming to the Wexner Center Wednesday afternoons August 22, 2012 – January 9, 2013 from 1:30 – 4:00 PM to explore contemporary art and see how artists, scientists, and activists are working to protect our natural environment. Students meet and interview contemporary artists involved in Wexner Center projects and take field trips to environmental research and service sites around Columbus as well as further afield. Students’ final art work will be exhibited at the Center from Dec 13 – Jan 2. Art & Environment is open to high school juniors and seniors in the central Ohio area. The course is free to those admitted and comes with transportation assistance, free books, and supplies. Contact [email protected] for more information.
