Fossilized in Houston
Matthew Schneider-Mayerson, a postdoctoral fellow at Rice's Center for Energy and Environmental Research in the Human Sciences, is seeking volunteers (which may lead to paid paid positions) for a public arts campaign he is organizing this spring. "Fossilized in Houston" will commission twenty Houston artists to create images of species that are expected to go extinct as a result of climate change, and these images (along with the name of the species, expected date of extinction, and the project's website, fossilizedhouston.com) will go on hundreds of lawn signs and thousands of posters and stickers all around Houston from March through July. If you're interested in helping in any capacity, email
Dr. Schneider-Mayerson at email@example.com.
