Gary Braasch Photography Opens Climate Change Exhibit
21 October 2009 | News story
Opening November 10, this photo exhibit with 20 images measuring five feet high will educate and inspire action on climate change. CEC member Gary Braasch invites you to his show in Washington, DC. Gary will be in Copenhagen in December taking photos and blogging.
"Climate Change In Our World" and "How We Know About Our Changing Climate”
In a major effort to educate and inspire about climate change and its solutions, Gary Braasch brings 20 five-foot color photographs abput climate change and its solutions today to the Washington headquarters of the American Assocation for the Advancement of Sciences, 1200 New York Avenue NW in Washington, DC, from November 10, 2009 through March 15, 2010.
Accompanying this show of images from his book Earth Under Fire: How Global Warming is Changing the World is a teaching exhibit for kids and adults about how scientists learn about climate change, in association with Lynne Cherry. This show includes educational ideas for classrooms and Lynne's films about kids who are reducing their climate impact in school and their communities.
The photos include some of the most powerful photographs witnessing change already happening around the world -- such as the image of an ice-free Arctic Ocean above -- and new photos documenting what is being done to create our energy and climate future. In the adjoining Gallery, Gary and his co-author and filmmaker Lynne Cherry will display images from their children's book How We Know What We Know About Our Changing Climate, and the "Young Voices" film project. This is an engaging display for kids, parents and teachers about how scientists find out about climate change and how kids can learn about it.
The main exhibit will highlight that effective response to climate changes -- taking action to reduce the greenhouse gases we send up with everything we do -- is taking place around the world. The future of cities, how we will live with low-emission transportation and buildings that are not only efficient but energy-generating (above), is already visible in my photographs. Portland Oregon is a center of innovation.
Hours for this show are weekdays from 8 to 6 and other times by arrangement -- agencies, NGOs, local groups, and schools are encouraged to use the show to advance their educational and inspirational work.
At Copenhagen: Gary will be photographing and blogging --- available for assignment.
In Washington, please note that the AAAS lobby atrium is spacious and beautiful and is a great setting for bringing in groups or individuals to increase their knowledge and commitment to change. Contact Gary about the possibilities for meetings, school sessions, receptions and programs
