Experts from the art world and current and former federal officials will discuss art, waterways, pollution, and how we shape the environment, at a May 15 forum titled Water, Water Everywhere.
Speakers include New Orleans Museum of Art Freeman Family Curator of Photographs Russell Lord, NOAA Chesapeake Bay Office Director Peyton Robinson, former EPA Senior Advisor for the Chesapeake Bay Jeff Corbin, and Chesapeake Bay photographer Dave Harp.
The May 15 event will take place from 2 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. at the Chrysler Museum of Art at One Memorial Place in Norfolk. The talk is inspired by Edward Burtynsky: Water, an exhibition at the Chrysler Museum of large-scale photographs depicting the complex relationship between human beings and our most vital natural resource. A reception will follow the discussion.
This event is presented by the Chesapeake Bay Foundation, the National Oceanic & Atmospheric Administration, Old Dominion University, and the Chrysler Museum of Art. The talk is part of the Blue Planet Forum series of free public lectures to inform and engage citizens on important environmental issues facing Hampton Roads and the nation.
