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.
