Elizabeth Lundberg Morisette’s (BEDA 1994) art piece, “ABORT,” illustrates a chapter in “Thoreau’s Legacy: American Stories About Global Warming,” a book of essays published by the Union of Concerned Scientists (Penguin Classics, 2009). “Katherine McLaughlin’s essay is about the clams and how they can never again be fully trusted by the community as a safe food ever since the 1989 Exxon Valdez oil spill,” said Morisette, who covered hundreds of colorful shoelaces in black paint for the piece. “ABORT” will be on display at the offices of the UCS at 1825 K St. NW, Ste. 800, Washington, D.C., through at least January, 2011.
