This exhibit will be closed Nov. 22 – 28 and will reopen on Friday, Nov. 29.

Join the conversation of Wild Rising by Cracking Art with Elephant in the Room, a thought-provoking interactive art exhibit in Ottosen Gallery that invites visitors to dig into rotating worldly topics and commit to reducing human impact on the natural world. The interactive art exhibit will feature topics related to biodiversity and climate change, including environmental happiness, cactus as a threatened species and the culture of convenience.

The experience is intended to be thought provoking and to inspire positive change. Visitor participation is not to just react to a topic, but to have an opportunity to take action or to commit to a positive change.
