Tidepools art, climate change speakers set at fine arts center

PORT ANGELES — Two events are set next week at the Port Angeles Fine Arts Center: a Tidepools Pop-up and an evening of information about climate change.

On Tuesday, Tidepools magazine — a student-run publication published by Peninsula College — will bring presentations of poetry and prose and a pop-up exhibit of artwork from this year’s edition to the center at 1203 E. Lauridsen Blvd.

On Thursday, “Civic Minds + Creative Hearts: Climate Change and Resiliency” will be offered from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the center. Presentations and a panel discussion are planned from 6:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. with mingling and light refreshments before and after. Tickets are $12 for members of the center and $15 for the general public. To register and for more information, see https://pafac.org/

Presenters are Bill Baccus, physical science technician for Olympic National Park; Ian Miller, coastal hazards specialist and oceanography instructor at Peninsula College; and Liz Schotman, Washington regional manager for Surfrider Foundation.

Thursday’s event is inspired by the exhibit “Terminus: A Glacier Memorial Project” which is on view at the center through Sept. 3. “We are honored to host a conversation about glaciers, snowpack, and sea levels- connecting our local landscapes to changes around the globe the center said on its website.

The center is open from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Thursdays through Sundays.
