In collaboration with the School of the Environment, the School of the Arts will host a round table discussion on the roles of arts and organizations in approaches to environmental research.
The lead investigators of the Sesquicentennial Colorado River Exploration Expedition, paleoecologist Tom Minckley (University of Wyoming) and artist Pat Kikut (Sante Fe, NM), will be joined by a panel of Boise State faculty: Sophia Borgias (Human-Environment Geography), Kendra Kaiser (Watershed Hydrology), Bob Reinhardt (History), Jon Sadler (Photography) and Rulon Wood (Film). We will also be joined by Daniel Ritz (Idaho Wildlife Federation) and Nic Nelson (Idaho Rivers United).
The round table will be moderated by Emily Wakild (Cecil D. Andrus Endowed Chair for Environment and Public Lands) and will be recorded. Light refreshments will be provided. The expedition’s sponsor, Boise-based AIRE, will give away a prize for one lucky audience member (free tickets at the door).
The interactive exhibition on “River Time” in the Stein Luminary will be open to the public, 4 – 6 p.m., Tuesdays through Fridays, Feb. 28 – March 17, 2023.
