Upcoming Art Exhibit 2/10 ~ Weather on Steroids: the Art of Climate Change Science


Weather on Steroids: the Art of Climate Change Science explores the question of consequences, challenges, and opportunities that arise from the changing climate on our planet. The exhibition merges the artistic and scientific to create a visual dialogue about the vexing problem of climate change, explores how weather variability affects the day-to-day life of local communities, and investigates Southern California vulnerability to climate change. It draws on the region’s scientific expertise at Scripps Institution of Oceanography, whose La Jolla-based investigators are at the forefront of climate research, reflecting on humanity’s role in our changing environment, and envisioning new possibilities for a sustainable future. Science serves as the inspiration for the creative responses from visual artists, who merge subjective images with empirical observation to reveal how climate variations upset the planet’s balance with extreme weather impacts. By illuminating the reality of climate change, Weather on Steroids aspires to proactively stimulate public dialogue about one of the most important issues of our time.

Climate Science Alliance Affiliated Artist, Ruth Wallen, will be showing an art piece at this exhibit.
