Please join us for the third Environmental Policy and Planning Lunch of the Spring 2018 Semester featuring artist Harun Mehmedinovic. Mehmedinovic, with Professor Janelle Knox-Hayes, will discuss SKYGLOW - a three-year effort to document the impacts of light pollution to our fragile environment, the history and mythology of celestial observation, the proliferation of electrical outdoor lighting that spurred the rise of the phenomena known as "skyglow,” and the Dark Sky Movement that's fighting to reclaim the night skies.
Lunch will be served.
