The Betsy and Florida International University welcome International visual and installation artist Anita Glesta.  Glesta will be working with FIU in January 2017 to take footage of sea level rise and other pertinent imagery, as well as to collaborate on ideas and data that will be  integrated into her video project, Watershed, which has been projected in various venues internationally.
