Abstract

An exploration of using sculptural art in the form of street puppets to promote the awareness of environmental sciences and show support for the sciences in the Portland People's Climate March and the March for Science. The presenters will discuss messaging, design and art to cross the communication barriers between the scientific community and the general public. On display will be the street puppets designed and carried by student artists, two of the signs carried during the two marches, pictures and a short video from the marches and sketches from the design process.
