Exhibit takes on environmental role of death

A new exhibition at the DePaul Art Museum takes a unique look at something we take for granted. It’s called Rooted in Soil, and it opens Thursday. The art exhibit touches on environmental issues like erosion and deforestation. It also examines the role soil plays in human life and death. The mother-daughter team who curated Rooted in Soil, Laura Fatemi and her daughter Farrah, join us. Laura is the museum’s interim executive director and Farrah is an environmental scientist and assistant professor at St. Michaels College in Vermont. (Photo: Flickr/Unitedsoybeanboard)
