Nearby St. John Parish has the highest cancer risk in the nation due to unregulated emissions from Denka’s neoprene plant. Come talk with two of the grassroots leaders mobilizing to keep families from the harm of additional toxic emissions, while protecting the global climate from more greenhouse gases. The program will feature the film shorts and a discussion. Join Anne Rolfes Director of the Louisiana Bucket Brigade and Sharon Lavigne Founder & Director of RISE St. James in conversation.

  16. Opening of: Disruptions & Continuities: Recent Work by George Wardlaw

    September 25, 2019, 5:00 PM - 7:00 PM @ Herter Art Gallery

    The Herter Art Gallery celebrates its 50th year with Disruptions & Continuities: Recent Work by George Wardlaw. While also tracing back to work made in the last six years, it presents Wardlaw's final series, Disruptions. Made primarily on an iPad due to his increasingly failing health, this body of work was painted on canvas by his studio assistant, Kelsi Giguere. A practicing artist and a recent graduate from the Department of Art at the University, Giguere quickly assumed the role of a collaborator. Wardlaw, who passed away on July 26th while preparing for this exhibition, was a distinguished member of the avant-garde art scene in New York City during the 1950’s and ‘60’s. From 1968 until 1990, Wardlaw served in various capacities in the art department at UMass Amherst, including seventeen years as department chair.
