Our Planet – Art Exhibition on the Environment in a Changing Climate at NCAR, Boulder CO
“Our Planet” is a unique art exhibition created by 16 accomplished Colorado artists depicting how climate change is affecting our lives and environment. The objective of this art exhibition is to engage people on the subject of climate change by creating art that draws them into the subject visually and emotionally; connecting them to real life experiences and scientific understandings about what is going on today. For each painting, an artist statement describes the relationship between the art and what’s happening or can be done to address climate change. Thus, this show is not your typical art exhibition — albeit the artists’ works are beautiful on their own — but also an emotionally impactful experience and a learning opportunity. Viewers often come away with a sense of awe and wanting to do something more to change what is happening to our planet.
The artists exhibiting paintings in the show are:
Pushpa Sunder Mehta
H. Cedar Keshet
Sarah St George
Elizabeth Van Ingen
The exhibition will be on display in the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR, Boulder, Colorado) through May 3, 2019.
