This Round Table Event will take place on Pratt’s campus during Earth Action Week in order to spark vital discussions on ecological sustainability in the field of contemporary art. This event brings together contemporary artists whose work is driven by ecological principles and invites them to explore sustainability from multiple angles. This is a jumping-off point for a larger roundtable discussion with students and practitioners. Co-curated by MFA Candidate Suzanne Watters, Civic Engagement Fellow Mary Mattingly, and Professor Christopher Jensen.

This is a collaborative event with the Fine Arts Civic Engagement Fellowship, the STEAMplant Grant, and Critic-at-Large Harriet Harriss in the Graduate Center for Planning & the Environment
