Art on an Antarctic Glacier: Telling Stories of Climate Change
Sunday, September 15 at 2:00 in the Meeting Room.
What is it like to live and work on a science research boat? What is the Antarctic like? Is climate change really affecting Antarctic glaciers, and what impact will they have on the rest of the world? Karen Romano Young spent two months in 2018 at Palmer Station, Antarctica, and returned from her voyage to the Amundsen Sea in Western Antarctica this past March. She will explain the mission of the scientists on board research ships and at stations on land, and share the thrills and hardships of ship life and of the extreme climate of Antarctica, and talk about the challenges of making art in these situations. Karen is an award-winning children’s book author, a science comic artist, a deep-sea diver, and a sometime lab assistant. She will show her work to help us ‘get the picture’ about life in the Southern Ocean.
