Five distinguished panelists will discuss climate change,
including prominent journalists from Time Magazine and
the New York Times, as well as scientists and artists. We
invite the art, science and literary communities, along with
the broader public to join the dialogue on climate change.
The catalyst for the discussion is the Noyes Museum's
exhibition Frozen Earth: Images from the Arctic Circle.
Featuring the works of artists from a 2013 Arctic Circle
expedition, Frozen Earth offers a glimpse into how the
changing environment of the northern extremes of our
planet inspired artists to explore central issues of our time.
