LAUMEIER SCULPTURE PARK / ENGAGING THE COMMUNITY THROUGH ART AND NATURE
Laumeier is excited to announce Art & Global Change, a year-long examination of the intersections between art and global climate change.
Through public programs, special guests, and an exhibition in the Fall, many facets of the climate impact on our local and global environment will be explored.
Perspectives on art and global change will come from local scholars and environmentalists, as well as artists from around the globe.
This thematic exploration will run throughout 2020, culminating in the exhibition The Future is Present: Art and Global Change, on view from August 29–December 20, 2020.
In keeping with our mission to “Engage the community through art and nature,” Laumeier is making a commitment to exploring one of today’s most pressing topics: the global impacts of climatic and environmental changes, examined through the lens of contemporary art and local environmental issues.
Look for the graphic above as an indicator of programs and events incorporating the Art & Global Change theme.
