Are you interested in partnerships among artists, scientists and communities to create art and co-design projects related to Colorado-wide environmental issues?
In 2022-24 we are teaming artists from around Colorado with scientists at CU Boulder for an exhibition at the Colorado state capitol May 19 to December 1, 2023. Read more about the Colorado Art Science Environment (CASE) fellows here. The exhibition tells the story of how Coloradans are experiencing challenges of fire, drought and air quality in their communities, and works will explore our state’s water, from rivers to snow; earth and air, from the mountains to the plains and high desert; and fire, from forests to towns and suburbs. The narrative moves beyond debates about climate change to confront, amplify and make visible the connection all Coloradans have to our state’s natural landscape and, through our connection to place, to one other. A dialogue between the perspectives of artists, scientists and Colorado communities is reflected in the art.
