Copper: mining, art, and global competition for resources at ASU Art Museum

Copper is the theme of a unique program at the ASU Art Museum on May 7 for a lunchtime conversation "at the intersection of geology, sustainability, and art—in the midst of the exhibition, Cu29: Mining for You."
Former Colorado State Geologist Vince Matthews will give a presentation on the global competition for mineral resources. "Ongoing demands for mineral resources in the U.S., coupled with exploding economies in India and China, are straining energy and mineral resources in unprecedented and unnerving ways."

"After the presentation, Phoenix artist Matthew Moore and ASU geologist Steve Semken will join Matthews in a free-wheeling discussion. Moore will showcase the Cu29 exhibition, a collaboration with London artist Clare Patey, ASU faculty, and students. The exhibition centers on the endangered elements in the periodic table, specifically copper, a mineral at the core of Arizona’s history, economy, environment, and cultural life."

Co-sponsored by the ASU Art Museum. Limited free parking available at the Ceramics Research Center on the northeast corner of Mill Avenue and 10th Street.
