“Green presents fresh perspectives on climate change and related environmental and conservation issues.” Featuring the work of 9 emerging artists, “the aim is to provoke and evoke a response from you that leads to a broader dialogue about each of us might think, react and act on this global crisist that goes beyond the walls of this gallery.”

Curator Susan O’Malley takes Loni on a tour of some of the pieces in the video below. The exhibit runs to September 20, 2009.

Also, don’t miss the site-specific sculptural installation, Ice Floe, by Christel Dillbohner which references the majestic Arctic landscape.
