In the summer of 2019, expeditionary artist Maria Coryell-Martin and science educator Katie Morrison traveled to Cooper Island, a remote island in the Alaskan Arctic. There, they assisted ornithologist Dr. George Divoky with his research on a Black Guillemot seabird colony, recording data on the population and health of the seabirds. Divoky has studied this colony since 1972, creating a unique, extended data set with 47 consecutive years that documents the decline of this seabird population in response to the warming Arctic. Speakers will discuss their current interdisciplinary exhibition at the Jefferson Museum of Art & History and reflect on the biological, atmospheric, and personal consequences of climate change.
This program is generously supported by grant funding from the Jefferson Community Foundation.
