Sea Change Exhibit Ebbs to a Close Dec. 9

by Natalie Rand

As the fall semester comes to a close, time is running out for the College of Charleston community and the public at large to visit the Sea Change exhibition at the Halsey Institute of Contemporary Art. Featuring sculptures by Aurora Robson and photography by Chris Jordan, this series of exhibitions is a visual representation of the damaging effects of plastic consumption on our oceans and wildlife. The last day to explore Sea Change is Dec. 9, 2017.

The College Today has examined various aspects of the exhibition and the artists throughout the semester.
