It’s hard to be optimistic about your future when your Facebook feed is full of images from the burning Amazon rainforest, but this is a chance to log off, get out in the real world and find a shred of hope.

The work of Hope Ginsburg, who is the University of South Florida School of Art and Art History 2019-2020 Kennedy Family Artist In Residence, and she’s giving a lecture about how she’s created pieces — specifically Sponge Exchange, which uses “sea sponges and hard corals as a metaphor for exchange and the ecology of learning to stimulate social transformation” — meant to cultivate resilience by addressing critical social and environmental issues.

Thurs. Sept. 5, 7 p.m. Free to attend. Fine Arts Hall Lecture Room at University of South Florida, Tampa. usf.edu
