The Gravity of Today:

Visions of Tomorrow
Event detail

The goal of this exhibition is to show, through image and art, the possible results of a world affected by climate change.

On the one hand, greed and denial of dire scientific warnings about global warming may have a disastrous effect on our way of life and possibly threaten our existence on planet Earth.

On the other hand, we may, with luck and determination, be able to save our own lives through the use of technology, cooperation, diplomacy and peace planning.

For this exhibit, the artists have been asked to envision one future or the other.

Philip Linhares, Jeanne Falk Adams and Michael Brunsfeld were jurors for this exhibit.

Supported by Friends of the San Francisco Public Library, the Wallace Stegner Environmental Center, and the Digital Artists Collective.

Opening event: "The Intersection of Art and Socially Relevant Issues," Sunday, July 22, 2018, 1:00 PM. Artists Chris Roche and Joanna Ruckman, environmentalist Claire Greensfelder and others discuss the exhibition and climate issues.

Sponsored by the Wallace Stegner Environmental Center at the San Francisco Public Library, Friends of the San Francisco Public Library, The Digital Artists Collective and Michaels.

This is a Green Stacks event sponsored by the San Francisco Department of the Environment.
