An Imminent Wave

This semester the Art in a Democratic Society students engaged in a SEA (Socially-Engaged Art) and pedagogy project. Included here are photos and documentation from the project “An Imminent Wave”, focusing on the intersection of climate change and immigrant and refugee issues. It was created by St. Norbert College ART 285: Art in a Democratic Society students in collaboration with the Norman Miller Center for Peace, Justice, and Public Understanding. The project was created using a deliberative democratic decision-making model with consensus-building being a goal in the development of the project from start to finish, and community engagement on a relevant emerging issue as the focus for the project. Students involved in the project included: Ricardo Aguado, Grace Hammer, Nathan Jocz, Deandre Johns, Daniela Montalvo Tinajero, Claire Ostopowicz, Connor Randall, Anthony Rosenthal, Aida Schwiesow, Marc Thomas, Gannon Vande Hey, and Yazmin Villarauz. Brandon Bauer served as the Faculty advisor along with the assistance of the Norman Miller Center staff. The public presentation of the work is currently on view in the Mulva Library 1st Floor Flex Space on the campus of St. Norbert College and will be on display in some form through the Spring 2022 semester. A special thank you goes out to the Norman Miller Center staff and the Mulva Library staff for support, guidance, resources, and for hosting the work!
