"Shale Play: Poems and Photographs from the Fracking Fields"
Julia Spicher Kasdorf and Steven Rubin
January 4 - January 27
Friday, Saturday, Sunday 12:00-4:30
Penn State faculty members, Julia Spicher Kasdorf and Steven Rubin will share their stories and images about everyday life from Appalachian Pennsylvania and the Marcellus Shale region in an exhibition of works from their book, Shale Play. Kasdorf and Rubin joined forces and art forms to better tell the stories of the fracking fields. Shale Play is an exhibition of documentary poems and color photographs created between 2012 and 2017 in response to the rush to mine the Marcellus Shale natural gas formation in Pennsylvania. The words and images amplify many voices and points of view to establish the complexity of the issues.
