In partnership with Skagit Climate Science Consortium, Skagit Land Trust, Skagit Watershed Council, and Swinomish Indian Tribal Community, MoNA invites you to envision climate change through Surge, a week-long exhibition of art, science, and information centered on climate change and its impacts on Northwest coastal communities.
Surge is a partnership among scientists, educators, and artists to explore changes and impacts such as rising sea levels, changing river flows, and how these affect people and the ecosystem we live in and depend upon. This year’s exhibit is fundamentally about interconnectedness. The exhibits involve forests and forest ecosystems, magnitude and movement of freshwater and sediment, coastal and estuarine areas, and invite curiosity about the interconnectedness of the physical (storm surge, sea level rise, flooding, salt) and living (plants, animals, human) worlds. Surge offers the opportunity for that curiosity to result in greater awareness that can lead to community efforts to inspire change. The exhibit is free and open to the public.
Artists include: Christine Awad Schmalz, Mary Coss, Heather Cromwell, Madeline Crowley, Alice Dubiel, Mona Fairbanks, Lauren Frugé, Cara Jaye, Theodora Jonsson, George Lee, Klara Maisch, Eve McCauley-Chomiak, Lin McJunkin, Colleen Monette, Jazz Morgan, Julie Morse, Yvette Neumann, Richelle Potter-Kypuros, Heather Thomas, Suze Woolf, and Jennifer Yates
