The Penn Program in Environmental Humanities hosts a community conversation, "Remembering Refining," featuring environmental artist, Amy Balkin; environmental scientist, Peter DeCarlo (Johns Hopkins); Grays Ferry community experts, Charles and Tammy Reeves; and NY Times Magazine reporter, Linda Villarosa. Balkin’s "Area of Interest" billboard-as-visual essay provides the event's dramatic backdrop. The conversation, offered in person and online, will be moderated by Professor Bethany Wiggin, coordinator of the collaborative Futures Beyond Refining project, launched in the immediate aftermath of the Philadelphia refinery explosion in 2019.
