Voices from the Farm: Digging Deep in the Vermilion Watershed

Date: Saturday, February 23
Time: 2-4pm
Location: Gallery 400 Lecture Room

Charlie Corwin humanizes this struggle with a reading of stories from the perspective of farmers in the Vermilion River watershed of Illinois. Artist Stella Brown leads a gallery discussion of her work Vermilion River Watershed Geologic Column followed by an all-ages workshop.
