SEPTEMBER 14 – DECEMBER 21, 2007 — “Weather Report: Art and Climate Change” is an exhibition curated by internationally renowned critic, art historian, and writer Lucy R. Lippard. It is presented in collaboration with EcoArts.

This exhibit partners the art and scientific communities to create a visual dialogue surrounding climate change. Historically, visual arts play a central role in attracting, inspiring, educating and motivating audiences. “Weather Report: Art and Climate Change” will exhibit artwork, in the museum and our partnering venues, and in outdoor site specific locations throughout Boulder, that will activate personal and public change.

Our collaborating partner EcoArts is a new effort bringing together scientists, environmentalists, and performing and visual artists – along with producers, presenters, scholars, spiritual leaders, policy makers, educators, businesses, and people from all walks of life – to use the arts to inspire new awareness of, discussion about, and action on environmental issues, with new possibilities for envisioning a sustainable future. Its programming principles are artistic excellence, scientific accuracy, environmental effectiveness, ethical practice, and whenever possible, presenting activities that strive to follow “the middle way” of being either non-partisan or bi-partisan to reach the widest audience possible.
