The event marks the end of Re:Acclimating, a juried, group exhibition that has been addressing humanity’s impact on the environment since Jan. 9.

Paul “Che oke’ten” Wagner is an internationally known presenter of traditional songs and stories of his Coast Salish tribal ancestors. Most recently, Wagner has been actively involved with issues surrounding the Dakota Access Pipeline movement.

Kelly Dylla, who is the executive director of the KAC, will sit down with Wagner to discuss nature, climate change, and art. The People’s Choice and Jurors’ Choice awards will be announced.

Drinks and light snacks will be available.
