This eco-friendly catalog includes writings by Lucy R. Lippard and major writers on environmental art and climate change. It was published by the Boulder Museum of Contemporary Art (in Colorado) as part of the 2007 exhibit "Weather Report: Art and Climate Change," curated by internationally renowned art critic, historian, and writer Lucy R. Lippard. "Weather Report" underscores art's potential to educate and motivate audiences. Issues regarding desertification, floods, changing watersheds, global warming, renewable energy, carbon profiling, reforestation, species transformation, ozone layer, ocean acidification, and soil subsidence are presented through artists eyes to provoke a tangible, immediate connection with the viewer. The intent of the exhibit was to partner the scientific and art communities to create a visual dialogue surrounding climate change.
