MUSEUMS AND EXHIBITIONS

The Gottesman Hall of Planet Earth opened at The American Museum of Natural History in 1999. Already then, climate change was one of the five major focus areas. By 2018, its climate change exhibition was utterly updated with comprehensive updates to a section about one of the most urgent scientific issues of our time. At almost the same time, climate change already had its own museum. Housed at the Parsons School of Design and created by Miranda Massie, The Climate Museum opened its first show on January 25, 2018, bathing the outside sidewalk in a cool blue light from a video of the Greenland Ice Sheet, a new work by Los Angeles artist Peggy Weil.
