“Water in Crisis” is the theme of Fresno State’s 2015 Artist Invitational Exhibition. Four major professional artists are featured: Robert Dawson, Newton and Helen Harrison, and Isabelle Hayeur. They approach the theme of water from a wide range of perspectives, including aesthetic, cultural, economic and environmental. One of the highlights of the show is a work by the Harrisons titled “Sagehen: A Proving Ground,” a projected 50-year research project that studies the effects of global warming, drought and species adaptation at a 9,000 acre site in the High Sierra.
