Environmental Empathy featuring Mary Mattingly

  • Laboratories at St. Francis College 180 Remsen Street Brooklyn, NY 11201 United States (map)

We are delighted to participate in and respond to the Environmental Empathies exhbit at SFC. Curated by Katherine Gressel, the show explores the connection between empathy and action around climate change. The exhibiting artists ask us to consider those experiencing the effects of climate change, and the plant and wildlife being impacted.

As part of the exhibit, Mary Mattingly’s edible garden and soil library invites visitors to collect local soil samples to both test and observe/draw under microscopes at SFC’s next Art in the Lab event on February 20. We will be be looking at cultured organisms from soil, and performing basic testing of soil samples that participants bring.

Bring some earth from your neighborhood, or just bring yourself. As always art supplies are provided, but feel free to bring your own. FREE but RSVP so we can save your space at the microscope.
