Climate Art Fellow Dr. Hillgarth Unveils Collaborative Exhibit “Through the Lens of SeaSCAPE”


As this summer’s Climate Art Fellow, Dr. Nigella Hillgarth worked alongside CAICE researchers to create a stunning collaborative art exhibit highlighting the role of atmospheric chemistry and its impact on the earth and its inhabitants. The “Through the Lens of SeaSCAPE” exhibition was unveiled at CAICE’s 7th Annual Meeting.

As the 2019 Climate Science Alliance Art Fellow, Dr. Nigella Hillgarth spent the summer with the NSF Center for Aerosol Impacts on Chemistry of the Environment (CAICE) for their SeaSCAPE experiment. Dr. Hillgarth worked with CAICE researchers to explore the role of atmospheric chemistry and movement of microbes to tell the story of a changing climate and its impact on the earth and its inhabitants.

“Through the Lens of SeaSCAPE” made its inaugural debut at the Y7 Annual CAICE meeting on October 1-4, 2019.

The art created from this partnership will be utilized to help us better engage with local communities on climate impacts and solutions that can lead to informed decisions that enhance our resilience to climate change impacts. Stay tuned for information about upcoming exhibitions!

This year’s fellowship was sponsored through a unique collaboration between the Climate Science Alliance and the NSF Center for Aerosol Impacts on Chemistry of the Environment at Scripps Institution of Oceanography (SIO), with additional support from our partners at the Center for Climate Change Impacts and Adaptation at Scripps Institution of Oceanography.
