Chatham University presents the art exhibition “Reflections: Homage to Dunkard Creek” now through May 25 at the Art and Design Center mezzanine gallery, located on its Shadyside Campus, Woodland Road. “Reflections,” which opened April 10, is a collaborative installation art project created by 90 regional artists to commemorate the lives of the many species that perished in Dunkard Creek in September 2009. All of Dunkard’s gilled inhabitants died when a fatal combination of mine wastes and low water, exacerbated by industry water withdrawals, set off the bloom of an alien toxic algae, suffocating an estimated 65,000 animals.
The opening reception, to be held from 4 to 8 p.m. on May 10, is held in conjunction with the Perspectives on Silent Spring at 50 symposium, hosted by the Rachel Carson Institute at Chatham and the National Aviary. The free and public exhibition will be on view Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. through May 25.
