Rebecca Rutstein: Convergence

Audience:

 

Rebecca Rutstein’s new mural Convergence is a 60x100-foot mural on the Schuylkill River trail, created with Mural Arts Philadelphia. The mural celebrates the river and surrounding environment as it winds through Central Philadelphia, a fitting project for Rutstein, who is both an artist and an ocean explorer working at the intersection of art, science and technology.

Rutstein will discuss how her art engages with her interests in geology, microbiology, and marine science, and her passion for forging a dialogue about environmental stewardship in the face of climate change.
