SAM panel on art and environmental advocacy, Jan. 28

What roles should artists play in championing environmental causes? How can environmentalists and artists collaborate to build public interest around sustainability?

We’re pleased to sponsor a free panel discussion presented by the Seattle Art Museum (SAM) and Cascade Land Conservancy that will explore these and other issues,
11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m., Thursday, Jan. 28 at Olympic Sculpture Park’s PACCAR Pavilion.

Titled Art and Environmental Advocacy: A Dialogue, the discussion is part of SAM’s Pivotal Perspectives: Conversations on Art and Culture, a series of discussions exploring the intersection of art, culture and the environment.

Moderated by Crosscut founding publisher David Brewster, the panel includes Grist writer and editor Jen Harper, artist Lorna Jordan, wildlife photographer Steven Kazlowski and John Marzluff of the School of Forest Resources at the University of Washington.

The event is free, but seating is limited. Advance registration is required.
