Rising Tide: The Crossroads Project

Wednesday, February 23, 2022

6:30 PM-7:30 PM

Rising Tide: The Crossroads Project, a multi-disciplinary live performance fusing original music with art, imagery, and science to address global sustainability and provide a path toward meaningful response. Through an original score by composer Laura Kaminsky, live musical performance by the Fry Street Quartet, lecture by physicist and educator Robert Davies, and imagery by visual artist Rebecca Allen and photographer Garth Lenz, Rising Tide unfolds in a series of vignettes juxtaposing the natural world from which we have emerged and the human world that has emerged from us. Grounded in science, elevated by art, and igniting response, The Crossroads Project confronts a planet under siege and a future in peril, inspiring audiences to change the course. 

This two-day event comprises of:
Growing Art from Science - Panel Discussion: Wednesday, Feb. 23 at 6:30 p.m.
Rising Tide - Performance: Thursday, Feb. 24 at 7 p.m.
