An art exhibition, open to the public, exploring the complex subject of climate change and the path to prepared, resilient and "climate smART" communities.

This exhibit, which will run through April 30, 2015, focuses on climate change through the works of two artists, Peter Handler and Paula Winokur. Sponsored by Honoring the Future, the exhibit includes Handler’s series, “Canaries in the Coal Mine,” five free-standing pieces examining places on earth pointing to signs of climate change; and Winokur’s ceramics and aerial photographs of Greenland glaciers of melting ice and other impacts of climate change.
