Our EarthRise: 2069 Photography Exhibition features compelling works by student artists from University of the Arts in Philadelphia (pictured) expressing their vision for our world looking 50 years into the future. Inspired by the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 lunar landing, their compelling visual images tackle these themes: the environment, gender equality, gender identity, food deserts, and science and technology.
The exhibition is currently being featured at The Franklin Institute in Philadelphia, PA, as part of the Institute's Night Skies in the Observatory summer series on the following dates: July 16, July 18, August 13, and August 27, 2019. To secure tickets, visit www.fi.edu.
