Vanishing Ice: Alpine and Polar Landscapes in Art
offers a glimpse into the rich cultural legacy of the planet’s frozen frontiers. International in scope, the exhibition traces the impact of glaciers, icebergs, and fields of ice on artists’ imaginations — giving another perspective on why ice matters. A world without ice holds profound consequences for plant and animal habitats as well as human culture. One quarter of Earth’s population (1.9 billion people) relies on glacier-fed rivers for life-sustaining water. Through 5/13 at Weisman Art Museum, University of Minnesota, 333 E. River Road, Minneapolis. Information at 612-625-9494 or wam.umn.edu.
