Climate art: let’s get it right – An exhibit of words on paper by UVA’s @writeclimate

Since February, @writeclimate engaged over 1200 members of the UVA community in a conversation on climate change. On pieces of paper, they all wrote a piece of our shared climate story— the history of climate science and policy, why we care about climate change, and what we are doing about it. From the paper, students have created art. The show opens at the amphitheater on April 16th at noon. April 17th-23rd you can visit the show in Clark Hall.
