'Telling Water's Story: Art, Science, and Narrative' to feature Cynthia Barnett, Peter Dorhout and Lynn Benson

By Kelsey Longpine

"Telling Water's Story: Art, Science and Narrative" will take place at 5:30 p.m. Thursday, March 8, at the Beach Museum of Art. 

The program includes a presentation by Cynthia Barnett, environmental journalist and author, followed by a conversation on how the visual arts, scientific practice and journalism intersect in tackling environmental challenges.

Panelists include Peter Dorhout, K-State vice president for research and a professor of chemistry, and Benson. Linda Duke, director of the Beach Museum of Art, will moderate.

The event is offered in partnership with K-State Libraries, The Collegian Media Group, Global Foods Systems, and the Prairie Studies Initiative — all at K-State — and the Volland Store Gallery near Alma.
