Sensing Change is an art exhibit that aims to highlight the intersection of art and science, presented by Chemical Heritage Foundation (CHF). FMA Associate Professor Roderick Coover’s work is featured in the exhibit along with other other artists’ work by Vaughn Bell, Diane Burko, Katie Holten, Stacy Levy, Eve Mosher, Fernanda Viégas, and Martin Wattenberg. Featured artists use their work to interpret scientific findings, historical records, and their own observations to bridge the divide between what can be seen in daily life to larger global changes. Their work creates a space for conversations emerging out of a renewed sense of place.
Sensing Change is a ten-month exhibit of art that visualizes the unseen regarding the issue of climate change. It is a comprehensive exhibit, giving audiences access through a variety of channels. Guests may wish to see the artwork in person by visiting the Hach Gallery, engage in a First Friday program or community outreach event, listen to CHF’s podcast Distillations for a themed series surrounding Sensing Change, or participate online via the website and social media platforms.
Opening day of the exhibit has specially extended hours for First Friday. Regular operating hours are Monday through Friday 10am-4pm; Special summer hours June-August 10am-5pm.
