  • Students with the UAFS Green Team and Art Club have partnered with 64.6 Downtown to utilize the power of art to promote sustainability and environmental responsibility.

    The clubs will present an immersive art installation at Bastion Gallery in an effort to shed light on the severe environmental impact of single-use plastic.

    “Environmental stewardship is vital to the preservation of resources for present and future generations,” said Dr. Edward Serna, interim chancellor of UAFS. “As an institution of higher learning, our mission is to be proactive instead of reactive to the needs of our community and our world. The students who championed this project embody the spirit of UAFS, reaching beyond our campus walls and engaging with the community to raise awareness of global issues.”

    An opening reception for the installation, titled "Just A Bottle in the Ocean," will be held Friday, April 5, from 5-7 p.m.
