  Converge Las Cruces presents The Face of Climate Change, a photographic exhibition at the Cottonwood Gallery located in the Southwest Environmental Center taking place May 1 through June 14, 2019.

 

The Face of Climate Change, examines climate change through the eyes of twelve photographers. The exhibition visually documents and comments on the status of our warming world.

“There are a wide range of images in this exhibit,” said John Craig, Director of Converge Las Cruces. “We had a nationwide call for art, and artists responded with photographs that range from the subtle footprint of man on the landscape, to the harsh reality of global warming.”

 

The Face of Climate Change shows how artists are thinking about these important issues,” said Kevin Bixby, Executive Director of The Southwest Environmental Center. “The exhibit brings attention to one of the most important issues of our time and we are glad to be hosting it.”

 

An opening reception will be held May 3, 2019 from 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m at The Southwest Environmental Center, located at 275 North Main Street, Las Cruces, N.M. and will coincide with the monthly Las Cruces Downtown Art Ramble.
