Halvorson will participate in a panel discussion on March 26 at 4pm, and give a talk on March 27 at 7pm.
- Allan McCollum’s Shapes project is included in the group exhibition Creativity at Work at the Sun Valley Center for the Arts (Ketchum, ID).

- Maya Lin’s online project What is Missing? presents a dot-based map of the world, with each dot representing a species or plants that has disappeared. According to the website, the project’s mission is to “create, through science-based artworks, an awareness of this current crisis, connecting the disappearance of species to primary causes—habitat degradation and loss.” Online visitors are invited to contribute personal memories to the project.
