A Glacier at MSI
Extreme Ice tells the story of climate change though the compelling work of artist James Balog and his arresting images of melting glaciers from around the world. The exhibit team sought to create an exhibition that would connect people to the story of the glaciers in ways that highlight the urgency of climate change as well as the stunning beauty of the glaciers themselves. To that end, we decided to build a “glacier” for the exhibit—we call it the “Ice Wall.”
While most of us may never have the opportunity to see a glacier for ourselves, the Ice Wall gives people the chance to touch, feel and connect with the story of Extreme Ice in a tangible way.
