The Whatcom Museum’s Vanishing Ice exhibition, curated by Whatcom Museum Curator of Art, Barbara Matilsky, introduces the rich artistic legacy of the planet’s frozen frontiers now threatened by climate change, a phenomena understood by the public primarily through news of devastating climactic events. The exhibition offers another perspective by providing visitors an opportunity to experience the majesty of sublime landscapes that have inspired artists, writers, and naturalists for more than two hundred years. Comprised of 70 works of art, Vanishing Ice has traveled throughout the US and Canada.
