Join us for food, film and art at AquaConscience, this year’s sustainability art exhibition held during Earth Week, April 18- April 22, 2016!

This year’s theme centers around a critique of human impact on oceanography and marine life. Topics under consideration range from the effects of over-fishing and ocean acidification, to addressing the consequences of plastic pollution, offshore drilling and the death of coral reefs and other marine life.

At 6pm there will be a presentation by adjunct faculty member Ralph Critelli on shark finning and other ocean related issues, followed by a screening of Racing Extinction, a documentary that follows undercover activists trying to stave off a man-made mass extinction.
