RISE Pop-up Show Represents An Artistic Expression of Resilience


The Climate Science Alliance, in collaboration with partners of the 2019 Southwestern Tribal Climate Change Summit, recently curated RISE - an exhibition of incredible artists that celebrate resilience and overcoming insurmountable odds in the face of our changing climate.

Over the last few years we have witnessed first hand the dramatic impacts of our changing climate. Devastating wildfires, drought, and extreme heat events have ravaged our natural landscapes and threatened our human communities. However, In the midst of catastrophe – there is hope. Ecosystems withstand and adapt, communities come together, from the ashes – we rise.

The Climate Science Alliance, in collaboration with partners of the 2019 Southwestern Tribal Climate Change Summit, recently curated RISE - an exhibition of incredible artists that celebrate resilience and overcoming insurmountable odds in the face of our changing climate.

The RISE exhibition highlighted over 35 pieces from 15 talented youth, adult, and community artists. Artists were asked to provide pieces that represented what resilience means to them. Each piece had an important story to tell and together their message was one of hope.

The Climate Science Alliance sees the arts as a valuable tool for communicating and disseminating climate science to diverse audiences because it cuts across culture, age, education level, and socioeconomic status. RISE, and it’s curation for the 2019 Southwestern Tribal Climate Change Summit, embodies this dynamic vision.

Special thanks to all of the artists who contributed to this experience:

Amanda Gormon - Roland Rollinmud - Tomaso Marcolla - Troy Schalge - Adi Khen - Lia Suprunenko - Elaine Zhang - Lee Baek - Nahyun Sung - Silin Huang - Di Bo - Seoyen Lee - Veronica Faulks - Rachel Welch - Judith Toepel - Huellas Volcánicas - Audrey Carver - Joan Green - Climate Kids Tribes
