Fort Collins, CO: The Museum of Art | Fort Collins is exhibiting “Our Planet: Exploring Our Changing Environment” as well as glacier drawings from Trine Bumiller and Colorado wildlife and landscape photography from Michael Madrid through September 29, 2019.
More from the museum:
“Our Planet” is a unique art exhibition created by Colorado artist Bob Doyle. He gathered 16 accomplished Colorado artists to depict how climate change is affecting our lives and environment both locally and globally. 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. This is not a typical art exhibition but an emotionally impactful experience and learning opportunity.
The artists exhibiting paintings in the show are:
Pushpa Sunder Mehta
H. Cedar Keshet
Sarah St George
Elizabeth Van Ingen
At the same time, in our Lynnette C. Jung-Springberg Gallery, MOA will present the work of acclaimed Denver artist Trine Bumiller with her sketchbook drawings of 14 glaciers remaining in Colorado. This body of work was created from on-site treks to all the glaciers to record, remember, and respect their role in our environment. Trine is a graduate of the Rhode Island School of Design and spent a year with RISD in Rome, Italy. After graduating, she lived in New York City, working for Betty Parsons and Jack Tilton Galleries and pursuing her own studio work. Since moving to Colorado, she has exhibited her work nationwide in galleries and museums.
Also exhibiting in the Lynnette C. Jung-Springberg Gallery will be the animal and landscape photography of northern Colorado by acclaimed Fort Collins photographer Michael Madrid. Since 2015, Madrid has been the International Sports Director for USA TODAY Sports Images. Madrid holds degrees in photography and in journalism. His professional affiliations have included the White House News Photographers Association, the U.S. Senate Press Photographers Gallery, the National Association of Hispanic Journalists, and the National Press Photographers Association, where he is a former member of the board of directors.
Executive Director, Museum of Art | Fort Collins, Lisa Hatchadoorian states, “These three timely exhibitions show how 18 Colorado artists are grappling with the effects of a rapidly changing climate and environment on the Front Range and in our beloved national parks and wild spaces around the state.”
