Weather on Steroids: the Art of Climate Change Science, a new exhibition at the La Jolla Historical Society, explores the science of climate change through the works of eleven visual artists, with commentary provided by scientists from Scripps Institution of Oceanography. Through a variety of media, the artists interpret droughts and floods, extreme heat, rising sea level, fate of the oceans, coastal erosion and beach loss, and the consequences for human health and communities. This collaboration challenges us all to acknowledge our vulnerability to climate change while envisioning a more sustainable future.
At Wisteria Cottage, 780 Prospect Street
February 11 through May 21, 2017
Thursday – Sunday, Noon – 4 pm, free admission.
The exhibit will move to the San Diego Central Library Gallery, following the exhibition at the Historical Society. It will be in the library from June 10 through September 3, 2017
