Title: Greening the Visual Arts
Date: March 18th, 2015

Visual artists and teaching institutions use hazardous materials and natural resources in the creation of art.  Environmental and health issues include the use of and exposure to materials that contain known or suspected carcinogens, respiratory irritants, or hormone-disrupting chemicals. This interactive workshop will include an overview of common challenges in art studios and the opportunities to use or create safer and more sustainable practices, materials and supplies. Facilitators: Madeline Snow, Lowell Center for Sustainable Production, UMass Lowell and Lindsay Mercer, College of the Atlantic
