East Stroudsburg University’s Madelon Powers Gallery will present a virtual panel discussion, “Living with Worlds...As They End” at 4 p.m. on Wednesday, April 7, to accompany the virtual exhibition currently on view through the gallery’s website.

The “Living With Worlds...As They End” folio project began as an experiment in co-creation among artists and writers. It was intended to be a conversation across creative disciplines, locations, and time as the group hoped to explore the impact of global warming.

The artists and writers will come together for a virtual discussion about their project. “We could not have known at the start of the experiment that the conceit of this project would find new meaning during the Covid-19 pandemic,” said Darlene Farris-LaBar, professor and chair of the art + design department at ESU and a contributor to the project.

The panel moderated by Patricia Watts, founder of ecoartspace, will include Gabrielle Russomango, photography faculty, School of the Visual Arts; Deana Day, writer and historian; Nancy Campbell, poet and non-fiction writer (Library of Ice); Britt Dahlberg, anthropologist and director of research, Center for Humanism; Yvonne Love, professor of art, Penn State University; and Farris-LaBar.

The panel discussion is open to the public at no cost, and can be accessed via Zoom (
