Artist Miguel Luciano and environmental scientist Daniel Carrion lead a walk on the complex relationships between migration, housing, food insecurity, and pollution in West Harlem. Has the community made gains or losses over time? What will make for a healthier future?

Free and open to the public, but RSVP required.

Miguel Luciano received his MFA from the University of Florida. His work, which often explores community and cultural identity, has been exhibited nationally and internationally. His work is featured in the permanent collections of The Smithsonian American Art Museum, DC; The Brooklyn Museum, NY; El Museo del Barrio, NY; the Newark Museum, NJ, and the Museo de Arte de Puerto Rico, PR. Luciano recently created a public art project in Nairobi, Kenya as fellow of the smARTpower Program – an initiative of the Bronx Museum of the Arts and the U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of Educational and cultural Affairs.

Daniel Carrion received a BA in Environmental Studies from Ithaca College in 2008 and an MPH from New York Medical College in 2011, and has been conducting doctoral research at Columbia University since 2014.

Hs research in the field of Climate & Health, explores adaptation and mitigation strategies to simultaneously address health disparities.
