👏👏👏 #MMCProud! Congrats to Sarah Nelson Wright (@southnorthwest), an associate Communication and Media Arts professor and director of the Theresa Lang Center for Producing. Her public media art project Tomorrow’s Sea was selected for the outdoor exhibition Art at the BlueLine, which launches this Saturday at the South Street Seaport. Organized by the @waterfrontalliance, the show highlights the risk we all face from sea level rise and coastal storms. Wright created Tomorrow’s Sea, an interactive media sculpture, with new media artist Edrex Fontanilla. It transports viewers to NYC shorelines threatened by #climatechange.
