Why We Won’t Just Leave: What Alaska is Telling the World About Climate Change exhibition debuts in the SPARC virtual gallery with a curatorial talk led by exhibit curator Lindsay Carron on February 27th at 4:00pm PST. Ancillary programs will include a panel talk and youth programming. Attendees will leave the exhibition enriched by the information provided by exhibition participants, with tangible connections and action points, and inspiration for enacting change in their own communities.

On view from February 27 through April 10, the virtual exhibition features portraits, paintings, photography, stories, and video and audio profiles of over 15 artists, scientists, writers, and activists responding to climate change in Alaska. It examines the current climate crisis and its effects on Alaska’s environment and community.

As Alaska warms twice as fast as the rest of the world, changes in Alaska’s landscape have a global impact. Climate change impacts range from melting permafrost releasing methane and carbon dioxide into the atmosphere, infrastructure eroding into the ocean, compromised survival of animal species, and changing subsistence patterns affecting food security. From activists delivering testimonies in D.C. and artists revealing truth with beauty, to scientists studying methane released from melting permafrost, Alaska has a message for the world.
