Artists, poets, filmmakers, photographers: this winter the R.W. Kern Center is challenging you to look at what we throw away: waste.

For most of us, our waste is hidden. Trash is taken away to an unseen landfill; wastewater is processed in facilities far away from us; air pollutants are discharged in neighborhoods far removed from the public eye. This invisibility prevents us from conceptualizing our impact. Most of us have no sense of where our waste goes, how much waste we produce, or the legacy of our waste after we are gone.

Join us on February 13th from 7-9 pm for our visual art opening, performances (poetry readings, music, movement), and light refreshments.
