Can Art Drive Change on Climate Change? An Evening with Alexis Rockman

Acclaimed artist to be joined by David Abel,
Pulitzer Prize-winning reporter for The Boston Globe

Leading the conversation is acclaimed artist and climate-change activist Alexis Rockman, who will present specially chosen examples of his work and discuss how, and why, he uses his art to sound the alarm about the impending global emergency.

Adding insight and his own expert perspective is The Boston Globe’s David Abel, who since 1999 has reported on war in the Balkans, unrest in Latin America, national security issues in Washington D.C., and climate change and poverty in New England. Abel was also part of the team that won the 2014 Pulitzer Prize for Breaking News for the paper’s coverage of the Boston Marathon bombings. He now covers the environment for the Globe. 

Following Rockman’s presentation, Abel will join Rockman for a wide-ranging dialogue at the intersection of art and environmental activism, followed by question-and-answer session with the audience. 

Join us for a night of captivating conversation with Alexis Rockman and David Abel in the latest installment of Bruce Museum Presents, our monthly series of public programs featuring thought leaders in the fields of art and science.
