Going Up: Climate Change + Philadelphia

September 24, 2016 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm

Free

Join us for the opening of a gallery exhibition showcasing a range of art work exploring impacts, solutions, and questions about climate change – eight artists explore various dimensions of the future of a hotter, wetter Philadelphia.  Two artists made “river prints” dipping handmade paper into the pollution on the surface of the Delaware River; one paints exquisite watercolor landscapes, the contours following the data graphs of key climate indicators such as COconcentrations; another artist creates paper works inspired by the tunnels built by bark beetles.

Though unquestionably one of the most pressing issues of our time, climate change is classically difficult for us to wrap our minds around. Art about climate change has a unique potential to make these problems personal and relevant, with artists able to serve in the role of commentator, collaborator, storyteller, catalyst, and more. Drawing lines between global phenomena and what happens in our own lives and communities means the difference between despair and engagement.
