The Fall 2016 edition of InsideART focuses on the USFCAM exhibition Extracted.
Growing consensus among scientists suggests that we live in a new geological epoch characterized by humankind’s impact on Earth: the Anthropocene. This impact is evidenced in part by remainders of fossil fuel production and consumption, petrochemical use, industrial agriculture and mining. Extracted brings together a group of artists whose work investigates the extraction of natural resources, and the material and cultural circulation of such resources around the globe. Participating artists: Mary Mattingly, Otobong Nkanga, Claire Pentecost, David Zink Yi and Marina Zurkow. Extracted is curated by Megan Voeller and organized by USFCAM. Claire Pentecost's participation is supported by USFCAM's Art for Community Engagement (ACE) patrons: Sharmila and Vivek Seth, Allison and Robbie Adams, Courtney and Jason Kuhn, Francesca and Richard Forsyth, the Stanton Storer Embrace The Arts Foundation, and the Frank E. Duckwall Foundation.

Cruz, Professor of Social Science Education and Dr. Cheryl Ellerbrock, Associate Professor in Teaching and Learning; Sarah Mead, M.A., Doctoral Student in the USF College of Education; and Noel Smith, Curator, IRA.
