Petrochemical America remains a reality in our country. A recent CNN article highlighted new public health concerns in the Louisiana region that has come to be known as “Cancer Alley.” Through public outreach efforts, SCAPE hopes to highlight these regional challenges in order to promote and bring awareness to the risks these fence-line communities and ecosystems face. The debates about our nation’s energy use and its physical footprint are not limited to Louisiana; this year, prints from Petrochemical America, and the regional site tour video, were featured in gallery spaces in Pennsylvania, as part of a series of exhibitions that relate Louisiana’s fractured landscape to the emerging petrochemical landscape of Western Pennsylvania.
