This winter and spring, the Museum of Craft and Design (MCD) will present two new, dynamic exhibitions exploring the ways that creative individuals are addressing issues of climate change. Linda Gass: and then this happened… will examine the human-made and natural water infrastructure affecting the greater Bay Area, considering present and future challenges with respect to climate change. Evoking the chaos of climate change through the use of comforting materials, Gass’ work brings to light the incongruence between the safety of our individual homes, and the often devastating effect environmental manipulation has on the natural ecological processes of our collective home, California. Divided into four themed topics all related to water, the artwork in this exhibition reflect on sea-level rise, decreasing snowpack, impact of wildfires on our watersheds and changes to urban creek infrastructure.
