For Families

From Pollution, Art

How can toxic pollution become art? Join John Sabraw, artist and Associate Professor of Art at the Ohio University School of Art and Design, to learn about his pioneering work to harvest Ohio’s toxic coal sludge, transforming it into paint, and then, into art. Enjoy a lecture by Sabraw, or stay afterward for a guided hands-on art workshop that will allow participants to create their own piece of art using Sabraw’s paints.
