LOCATION: Figge Art Museum
Donald and Theresa Dardar of the Pointeau-Chien Indian tribe are fighting global warming on tribal land and will discuss their ongoing efforts to combat it. As water levels continue to rise, members of their tribe have had to find increasingly innovative ways to stop the erosion of the land where they live and work. Their ongoing struggle inspired artist Mia Feuer to create Mesh, one of her installations in Totems of the Anthropocene.
