The McNichols Civic Center Building is pleased to announce two new exhibitions opening Friday, Sept. 15.
Second Floor Exhibit (Boettcher Cultural Pavilion): ICE: Portraits of Vanishing Glaciers
Through December 23
Marking the tenth anniversary of the Extreme Ice Survey, this exhibition features nationally-known Boulder artist James Balog’s stunning color photography. The Extreme Ice Survey, based in Boulder, Colorado, uses time-lapse photography, conventional photography and video to document the effects of global warming on glacial ice. For more than 30 years, Balog has broken new conceptual and artistic ground on one of the most important issues of our era: human modification of our planet’s natural systems. He and his Extreme Ice Survey team share images that give a provocative insight into how changing climate affects the global landscape.
