The "More Than" garden: Audio installation and sun prints

Thursday, April 22, 2021 - 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Location: O'Hare Academic Building front entrance

Event Type: Other

Audience: Continuing Education Students, Faculty, Graduate Students, Staff, Undergraduate Students

Stop by the front of O'Hare to make a cyanotype sun print with Dr. Jen McClanaghan, associate professor in the Department of English, Communications and Media, and the students of her ENG224 course and the Willow literary magazine.

Listen to student-recorded personal essays called "More Than," inspired by a story about Ahmaud Arbery in which the the writer said that Arbery was more than a viral video, more than a hashtag, that he loved football and his mother's chocolate fudge cake and adored his nephews. Join us to honor these stories, each other and our need to connect and care for the environment around us to acknowledge that social and environment justice are inextricably bound.

The sun prints will be hung as part of a series of community prayer flags. This project is sponsored by the McAuley Institute for Mercy Education's interdisciplinary faculty collaborative focused on the critical concern of earth.
