An exhibition of work by students in the spring course “The Port of New Orleans: Culture and Climate Change.” In this class taught by Jeff Whetstone and cross-listed in visual arts, environmental studies and urban studies, students explored how New Orleans is decades ahead of any other U.S. city with respect to climate change, how the city’s culture embodies exuberance and improvisation, and how these qualities — married with scientific inquiry — are a strategy for the city’s survival. Visiting scholars and artists demonstrated how cooperation between cultural and scientific communities can provide valuable, sustainable strategies. The students spent a week spent over spring break in New Orleans, visiting sites of artistic and scientific intervention. The models, media, and other works on exhibit represent creative responses to the research data.
