MCALLEN, TEXAS – The South Texas College Library Art Gallery presents a fall 2020 virtual art lecture series, “Transforming Our World: The Changing Climate,” that examines the ways in which physical and social changes to our environment have influenced the work that some artists create.

Each conversation will connect a visual artist whose work has been influenced by these changes with other professionals and will include both local and non-local perspectives.
