Bring your lunch and meet local artists Steve Cagan and Mary Kelsey on Thursday, September 4 from 12-1pm during the BW community hour. Their Exhibit on South American Mining documenting the works and lives of El Choco, Columbia, grassroots miners - and the threats to their traditions - runs from September 3-16 in the CIG atrium. Organized by BW Professor Michael Melampy and sponsored by the NEO Sierra Club Rainforest Committee and the Center for Innovation & Growth, the artist/entrepreneurs' September 4 Gallery Talk showcases how they turned passion into opportunity, serving as a springboard for their work depicting the environmental impact of the El Choco mining project. Save room for dessert, exhibit viewing and a lively Q&A session with the artists!

Both the lecture and the exhibit are free and open to the public. If you have questions about the events, contact Michael Melampy at or 440-826-2263.
