the invisible connectedness of things
NCAR/UCAR will be hosting a special art-science exhibit at the Mesa Lab from February 1 through August 8, 2012. The exhibit, the invisible connectedness of things, designed and executed by visual artist, Kim Abeles, is part of a multi-venue installation presented by EcoArts Connections and the University of Colorado Museum of Natural History.
Abeles' exhibit brings together art, science, lichens , and "footprints of the sky." It is an out growth of a project that the artist and EcoArts Connections faciltated with Manhattan Middle School students to visualize smog.
The Mesa Lab's exhibit is one of several satelite displays, including exhibits at Air Care Colorado and BVSD's Manhattan Middle School (through February 17 only). The CU Museum hosts the bulk of the exhibit. It includes 16' photo walls and major lichen displays.
