Exhibition Spotlight: Living with Smoke

Exhibition Spotlight: Living with Smoke promotional image

The Pentacrest Museums will host a free virtual program to explore the impact of smoke on public health in the Western and Midwestern United States. In conjunction with our latest exhibition, Facing the Inferno: The Wildfire Photography of Kari Greer, the museums use Exhibition Spotlight to illuminate deeper themes of the exhibit and build further connections to our campus and community. Meet researchers from the University of Iowa and other organizations who are shaping the conversation around fire and smoke management with science and first-hand accounts.
