A new exhibit set top open next week at Carbondale Community Arts' gallery, Artspace 304, focuses on the mighty Mississippi.

According to a release from CCA, "Seasonal Pulse" is "inspired by the deep and present time of the meandering mid-Mississippi." The exhibit opens on Wednesday, Sept. 18.

Science and art collide in the exhibit, which takes a look at how humans are affecting the flow of the river, and how land stewardship could allow water to return to the floodplains of the Mississippi. 

The exhibition mixes digital prints, videos, sculpture, painting, drawing and net art, and includes a three-dimensional erosion model by Carbondale business Little River Research & Design. Artists featured include Brian Holmes, Sarah Lewison, Claire Pentecost, Steve Rowell, Michael Swierz and Maureen Walrath.
