COLD REGIONS WARMING
Cold Regions Warming is an interdisciplinary collaboration between artist Gennadiy Ivanov, Global Water Futures, and scientists John Pomeroy and Trevor Davies. Paintings, drawings, and videos depict locations in Canada where global warming has impacted glaciers, oceans, lakes, and rivers. Global Water Futures is headquartered at the University of Saskatchewan in Saskatoon and aims to demonstrate global leadership in water science in colder regions.
From a scientific base, the group also addresses the needs of the national economy in adapting to change and managing the risks of uncertain water futures and extreme events. With the combination of scientific fact and exquisite art, the exhibition is designed to inform on various levels of appreciation.
This free exhibition opening runs from 7 to 9 p.m. on Friday, October 28th. Registration is not required. Light refreshments, appetizers, and a cash bar will be available for the duration of the event.
