Environmental concerns, recycling, and broader social issues are just some of the big picture themes explored by the artists represented in the exhibit. Through a collaborative effort with the Seton Hall University Environmental Studies department and local environmental groups, the exhibit will correspond with the celebration of Earth Day on April 22 and will engage the general public with a variety of community events, artist led talks and guided visits.
