Art Exhibition Highlights How Climate Change Impacts Chicago’s South Side

You might think of science and art as separate domains, but a new yearlong project is bringing them together to explore the impact climate change is having on the Chicago region. The exhibition, “Third Coast Disrupted: Scientists and Artists on Climate,” is on display at the Brushwood Center at Ryerson Woods, an arts and cultural center in suburban Riverwoods. Third Coast Disrupted was created through a collaboration between Columbia College Chicago, DePaul University’s Institute for Nature and Culture and Terracom.
