New art exhibit: 'The Environment Calls for Action'

The new exhibit in the Waldemar A. Schmidt Art Gallery, “The Environment Calls for Action: Margaret Whiting and Renata Sack,” will run Oct. 25-Dec. 17. Global warming is a very real thing. Ocean waters are rising, wildfires are raging, and species of plants and animals are going extinct at an alarming rate. Artists Renata Sack and Margaret Whiting bring attention to the policies and practices in society that must be changed to preserve life and the earth. Through the use of photographs and mixed-media installations, the artists encourage viewers to comprehend the magnitude and urgency of the climate change crisis and draw conclusions to what desperately needs to be done to save the earth. The time to act is now—future generations depend on it.
