An Inspirational Evening with Artist Chris Jordan

cjmidway 1000px[3]It’s Geography Awareness Week!  Please join us on Wednesday, Nov 20 for an Inspirational Evening with Environmental Artist Chris Jordan.  

Chris Jordan is an acclaimed artist and cultural activist based in Seattle. His work explores contemporary mass culture from a variety of photographic and conceptual perspectives, connecting the viewer viscerally to the enormity and power of humanity’s collective unconscious. Jordan’s images edge-walk the lines between art and activism, beauty and horror, abstraction and representation, the near and the far, the visible and the invisible. His work asks us to look both inward and outward at the traumatized landscapes of our collective choices.

Currently, Chris is finishing up his first documentary film, Midway, which takes place on Midway Atoll, where tens of thousands of seabirds die each year from ingesting plastic from the polluted Pacific Ocean. Midway will take viewers on a lyrical guided tour into the depths of the astonishingly beautiful and tragic story of the albatross, inspiring us to connect on a deeper level with the miracle of our world and our own lives.
