TEDxFSCJ to Host "Vanishing Worlds," an Adventure Event Focusing on Ocean Preservation
Press release: Join TEDxFSCJ for an upcoming adventure event, “Vanishing Worlds,” where we will explore the underwater-themed paintings of Edmari Hernandez Silen, who’s exhibit, “A/Hogar,” is currently on display at the FSCJ Deerwood Center and serves as impetus and inspiration for our conversation.
The event will be hosted by FSCJ Student and Artist Maiya Elaine and FSCJ Professor of Biology Dr. Chris Perle. Over the course of the evening, a panel of experts will address how the ocean connects us to a wider set of meanings and memories and how both art and science can inspire us to understand, appreciate and better protect our ocean habitats.
