Inspired by WCU’s 2019-2020 Campus Theme “Sustainability and the Environment”, Resounding Change featured sound-based artwork that encourages visitors to listen more closely to the natural world and to think about how sound is being used in a time of environmental crisis. WCU Fine Art Museum Curator of Collections and Exhibitions, Carolyn Grosch, along with Tyler Kinnear, Musicologist and Arts Instructor in the WCU Belcher College, co-curated this exhibition, which was on display throughout Fall 2019.
