505 Theater

Paintings by artist David J Emerson Young will be on display in FAR's 505 Theater as part of the Global Warming Series.

The Global Warming Series is an education-driven art exhibition that addresses the causes and effects of global warmings through: 1) the display of eighteen provocative paintings that explore scientifically proven topics of global warming; 2) through educational materials provided to all viewers; 3) through seven (free) community lectures/workshops. Our aim is to engage community members, students, young people and activists on the science of global warming, discussing structural reasons, psychological effects, compassion, reasoning, hope.

The exhibit is a partnership between FAR and Heartland Community Reconciliation Center, and is made possible through in-kind and financial support of these two organizations and the Bloomington Urban Enterprise Association, as well as in-kind support from the Bloomington Arts Commission, the City of Bloomington Utilities Department, and WonderLab.

Please note: We are working hard and staying informed so we can find ways to safely view and experience art! The opening will take place in a large, well-ventilated 1,700 sq ft space and masks will be required. We will enforce social distancing, mask wearing and gathering limits throughout the event. Our building has a brand new needlepoint bipolar ionization system for air purification and weather permitting, we will open large garage doors to the outside for more airflow.
