Zaria Frostburg State University will host a presentation by artist Zaria Forman on Monday, April 1, at 7 p.m. in the Pealer Recital Hall of FSU’s Woodward D. Pealer Performing Arts Center. This event, sponsored by the Office of Student Affairs and the President’s Advisory Council for Sustainability, is free and open to the public.

Forman, who documents climate change with pastel drawings, will discuss her artistic practice, process and the intent behind her work and how she seeks to inspire change by sharing the beauty of the remote and threatened landscapes she depicts. She will share details of her trips with NASA and the most recent body of work those trips inspired.

Forman travels to remote regions of the world to collect images and inspiration for her work, which is exhibited worldwide. She has flown with NASA on several Operation IceBridge missions over Antarctica, Greenland and Arctic Canada. She was featured on CBS Sunday Morning, CNN and PBS. She delivered an online TEDTalk; spoke at Amazon, Google and NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center; exhibited in Banksy’s Dismaland; and was the artist in residence aboard the National Geographic Explorer in Antarctica. Her works have appeared in publications such as The New York Times, National Geographic, The Wall Street Journal and Smithsonian Magazine.
