The University of Colorado Art Museum Aims to Document Climate Change Through This Exhibit

At the University of Colorado Art Museum, it’s our vision to create a university culture that inspires creativity, innovation and original research. We aim to be an exemplary collecting university art museum that is held in high esteem by our peers. This can be seen at our current exhibit “Documenting Change: Our Climate”.

“Documenting Change: Our Climate” (Past, Present, Future) considers how our observation of natural worlds is influenced by measures of time and representations of form. From the tectonic to the technological, from the single-celled to the systemic, environments exist in a state of flux that can be studied and interpreted by a scientist or an artist.

This exhibition brings together diverse ranges of materials and observers, spanning historical and contemporary eras. Finely detailed Renaissance botanical publications, sweeping Romantic era landscape painting, late 19th and early 20th-century scientific photo-documentation of glaciers and contemporary works that visualize complex datasets are composed from soot, silver, wool, wood, ink, pixels, and more.

“Documenting Change: Our Climate” is co-curated by Erin Espelie and Hope Saska and will be on display through July 20, 2019. There is no admission fee for the museum. We are free for all visitors and encourage you to bring a friend!
