Ben Livneh, associate professor of civil, environmental and architectural engineering, has joined the Colorado Art Science Environment (CASE) Fellows program. The program is the latest incarnation of the Office for Outreach and Engagement's work to connect the arts, sciences and community for shared action on Colorado’s interrelated social and environmental issues.
CASE Fellows are artists from all corners of Colorado and CU Boulder scientists who will work in teams to produce artworks that will be exhibited at the Colorado State Capitol as part of the Colorado Creative Industries Creative Capital program, May-September 2023. The exhibition, tentatively titled "Coloradans and Our Shared Environment in Times of Challenge and Change," will tell the story of how Coloradans are experiencing interrelated challenges of fire, drought, and water and air quality in their communities. The CASE Fellows aim to build a sense of connection around Colorado environmental issues by co-ideating artwork with input from communities.
