Communicating climate with art and science

Posted

The Jefferson County Historical Society will host a virtual event, “Communicating Climate Change through Art, Science, and Education: A discussion with Maria Coryell-Martin, George Divoky, and Katie Morrison,” from 7 to 8 p.m. Friday, Oct. 22. The speakers will bring each of their unique perspectives to reflect on the consequences of climate change within their disciplines.

In summer 2019, expeditionary artist Maria Coryell-Martin and science educator Katie Morrison traveled to Cooper Island in the Alaskan Arctic. There, they assisted ornithologist George Divoky with his research on a black guillemot seabird colony, recording data on the population and health of the seabirds.

Divoky has been studying the black guillemots of Cooper Island, Alaska, since the 1970s. With 47 consecutive years of research, he has created a unique time series documenting the decline of the population in response to the melting Arctic. 

Those interested in the event can register at https://www.simpletix.com/e/communicating-climate-change-through-art-s-tickets-78963.

The program is supported with grant funding from the Jefferson Community Foundation and is offered by donation.
