Climate Museum for the Web
September 1, 2018 to November 6, 2018
Prominent, unexpected messages about climate change dot the New York City landscape, sparking curiosity and raising awareness. The exhibition consists of ten large, solar-powered highway signs with phrases that draw passers-by into the climate conversation. The signs will appear in parks across the city in a range of neighborhoods, including some of those most vulnerable to climate change, and will flash translations into several of the many languages of NYC.
This fall programming is made possible by a range of intense collaborations that appropriately represent the partnership and joint action needed to tackle climate change. Fifteen citywide partners will co-host a broad range of programming related to the exhibition and to moving forward together on the climate challenge. NYC Parks locations include Hunts Point Riverside Park and St. Mary’s Park, Bronx; Sunset Park, Brooklyn; St. Nicholas Park, Manhattan; Flushing Meadows Corona Park (starting Sept 10) and Rockaway Beach at Beach 94th Street, Queens. Visit climate-signals.org for the full list of locations.
This exhibition is presented by the Climate Museum.
