Our Planet - Art Exhibition on the Environment in a Changing Climate

Our Planet - Art Exhibition on the Environment in a Changing Climate

March 4, 2019 to May 3, 2019

“Our Planet” is a unique art exhibition created by 16 accomplished Colorado artists depicting how climate change is affecting our lives and environment. The objective of this art exhibition is to engage people on the subject of climate change by creating art that draws them into the subject visually and emotionally; connecting them to real life experiences and scientific understandings about what is going on today. For each painting, an artist statement describes the relationship between the art and what’s happening or can be done to address climate change. Though artists’ works are beautiful on their own, this show is not a typical art exhibition, but also an emotionally impactful experience and a learning opportunity. Viewers often come away with a sense of awe and a desire to do something more to change what is happening to our planet.

The artists exhibiting paintings in the show are:

Cliff Austin                     Sina March                        

Rick Brogan                    Susan McKelvy

Carole Buschmann        Pushpa Sunder Mehta

Marcie Cohen                Carol Peterson

Bob Doyle                       Jennifer Riefenberg

Susan Foster                   Elizabeth Rouland

H. Cedar Keshet             Barbara Takamine

The exhibition will be on display in the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) from March 4, 2019 to May 3, 2019. NCAR is located at 1850 Table Mesa Drive in Boulder.
