In an ongoing experiment to link art and science, researchers from the Climate Impact Group and Civil & Environmental Engineering partnered with local artists to develop exhibits on topics like climate change, sediment dynamics and water quality with visual expression.  The collaboration was facilitated by UW research partner Skagit Climate Science Consortium, and included the Skagit Land Trust, Skagit Watershed Council, and Swinomish Indian Tribal Community.  UW Freshwater and MoNA invite you to envision climate change through Surge, a week-long exhibition of art, science, and information centered on climate change and its impacts on Northwest coastal communities.  The exhibit was open through Sept 17-25, 2016.
