Mitch Epstein, who with Susan Bell is responsible for the new "What Is American Power?" posters appearing on billboards and transportation advertising in Cincinnati and Columbus (www.WhatisAmericanPower.com), comes to Cincinnati Art Museum's Fath Auditorium at 7 p.m. April 21 to discuss his project.

The images "illuminate the toll that energy production and consumption take on our economy, health, security, quality of life, natural resources and climate," a press release states. "WIAP asks us to define the meaning and future of American power as it extends to several other topics that intersect with energy: war, economics, corporatism, community, imagination and responsibility."

Reservations are recommended; admission is $10 general, $5 student/seniors/ETA members and free for Art Museum members.
