EcoArt Salon welcomes our Spring 2020 with two artists who have been documenting the changing landscapes and architectures of our shores. Virginia Hanusik is an artist and writer. We are lucky to have her as our guest, as she plans a move to New Orleans. Her work in both the New York and New Orleans estuarial regions engage with the changing architectures due to climate change. Her work importantly ties narratives of our connected shores. Artist Nathan Kensinger is an artist, filmmaker, curator, and writer who has been reflecting on and presenting the stories of the toxic spaces and industrial landscapes of New York and Staten Island for more than a decade. His work can be found at NYCurbed and his film “Managed Retreat” is an important testament to our time and the first communities in New York that have been displaced due to sea level rise. Join us for informal dinner and discussion with the artists.

Location  Paul Robeson Galleries, 54 Halsey Street, 3rd Floor, Newark, NJ 07102
