Documenting Change: Our Climate, the Rockies is the first in a series of exhibitions and programs in 2018/19 presenting the historical scope of documentary strategies shared by artists and scientists in their study of climate. Often their study involves recording change. The exhibition unites historical and contemporary materials to demonstrate connections between artistic production and scientific discovery. Alongside works from the University of Colorado Art Museum's permanent collection, the exhibition will feature documentary photographs from the archives of National Snow and Ice Data Center, and contemporary artworks with a focus on the Front Range Rocky Mountains. 

Programming related to Documenting Change is generously funded by the Grand Challenge.
