Glennon will be walking through the exhibition sharing her research and insights behind the art work. Wool and Water features more than 50 Fiber Art Pieces, each designed to reflect key data about the changing eco-systems of Adirondack lakes and rivers. Some highlight stressors ranging from rising temperatures to the impacts of pollutants on aquatic life. Many pieces were created by Michale Glennon, PhD Senior Research Scientist forPaul Smith’s Adirondack Watershed Institute, but the growing collection now includes works by more than 15 additional artists.
Inspired by the impact of the 50th Anniversary of the Clean Water Act, Glennon will discuss the changes reflected during this period in waters across the Adirondacks. The historic act aims to restore and maintain the chemical, physical, and biological integrity of the waters of the US. Come join us to explore Glennon’s wealth of knowledge during this walking lecture.
