May 6 @ 1:00 pm| Free
Presented by the Halcyon String Quartet
Date: Monday May 6th, 2019 at 1:00 PM
Location: High Mountain Hall, 5 Mountain Street, Camden, ME
This performance will take audience members on a musical and visual exploration of climate change impacts in Midcoast Maine. The program will combine photography and art with live string quartet music to capture the beauty, resilience, and vulnerability of the world we live in. The performance will open with a panoramic perspective of climate change that begins in the polar ice sheets and gradually zooms in to explore the impacts global changes are having in the Gulf of Maine and our Midcoast communities. Envisioning Change is intended for students and educators, however members of the public are encouraged to intend. The performance is designed to inspire new ways of thinking about and responding to the impacts of climate change by encouraging active stewardship of the places we live.
This event is presented by the Halcyon String Quartet in collaboration with the Climate Change Institute, Jill Pelto (artist), and the Watershed School and features some of the images from the Art of Climate Science art exhibit that was held at the Hutchinson Center in Belfast..
