Art Professor's Work Celebrates McColl Anniversary

The McColl Center for Art + Innovation will celebrate its 15th anniversary with the presentation of "Arctic Utopia," a major exhibition of mixed media sculptures, videos and site-specific installations by Marek Ranis, UNC Charlotte assistant professor of art and 1999 McColl Center alumnus.

The exhibit opens with a reception from 6:00 - 9:00 PM, Friday, Sept. 19, and it will be displayed through Saturday, Nov. 22.

In his work, Ranis investigates how climate change influences humanity, addressing the complex social and political consequences of this dynamic transformation. "The phenomenon of global climate change fascinates me," said the art professor. "Because of its acuteness and enormity of scale, we seem not to comprehend it and refuse to acknowledge it."
