Maggi Randall’s exhibit “Catastrophe Hats and Other Recent Works” is on display at Southern Vermont College’s Burgdorff Gallery through July 8. “My hats are a response to all manner of catastrophes, from melting ice caps to tsunamis, tornadoes and mudslides, all of which are increasingly assaulting the planet,” Randall says. “Why hats? Because these climate changes are in most everyone’s minds. What better way to contain them than in a hat?”
