    With the setting of the sun, the transition from day to night stirs within us a sense of mystery. What secrets does the night hold? What dreams and mysteries can be uncovered? When Darkness Falls will exhibit imagery that depicts night as the setting of the work. Artwork will reflect on why we are drawn to the darkness, and the unknown. Work will dramatize darkness, examine the juxtaposition of illumination in darkness, explore symbolism related to darkness such as gloom and superstition and reveal the mystery cloaked in wonder of the night.

  7. Science for Citizens - Flame Retardants: Friend or Foe?

    October 18, 2019, 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM @ Chesapeake Biological Laboratory

    Speaker: Dr. Heather Stapleton (CBL alumna PhD 2000; Dan and Bunny Gabel Associate Professor of Environmental Ethics and Sustainable Environmental Management, Nicolas School for the Environment, Duke University) Abstract: To reduce their flammability and the risk of fire-related deaths and injuries, a number of building materials, furniture, and electronics in our homes are now treated with chemical flame retardants. However, this has led to a significant increase in our exposure to these chemicals, and research suggests that these exposures are associated with neurodevelopment deficits in children, thyroid disorders, and potentially cancer. Please join UMCES-CBL alumna and Duke University Associate Professor Dr. Heather Stapleton as she discusses the good, the bad and the ugly of flame retardant chemicals in our home.
