MMoCA | Art Into Action: Drawing Awareness to Childhood Lead Poisoning in Wisconsin

May 19 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Tune into a live, virtual panel with artist Mel Chin, along with environmental scientists, activists, and physicians, on the danger of lead poisoning in children in Wisconsin. Chin has spent decades bringing attention to the issue, with his Fundred Project, a nationwide art activation aimed at prompting political action to help resolve the problem. Lead poisoning affects children in countless communities—particularly in low-income areas—causing long-lasting effects on learning, development, and behavior.
