About: The photo exhibition A Conservation About Conservation: Buffalo State Students Picture Great Lake Sustainability opens November 30 in the Atrium Gallery at Rockwell Hall. The exhibition, which runs through April 30, 2018, is free and open to the public. Along with photographs and videos featuring images from Lake Erie, Lake Ontario, and the Niagara River, the exhibit includes sculptures and installations highlighting environmental problems, such as a tower of plastic water bottles, a quilt created from hundreds of plastic bags, and a sculpture created out of cigarette butts lifted from local beaches. “Many of us hail from the Western New York area, with work providing an intimate reflection on a deeply personal location,” said Carmen Brown, one of the 16 student photographers. “We also come from the many boroughs of New York City, downstate New York, and one student from Kuwait, showcasing our unique and refreshing perspectives on Buffalo and environmentalism.” For more information on call (716) 878-6032 or visit the Art and Design Department website at http://artdesign.buffalostate.edu.
