Weather the Weather


  • The New York Hall of Science 47-01 111th Street Corona, NY, 11368 United States (map)

"Weather the Weather," a group exhibition by SciArt Initiative at The New York Hall of Science

September 10th, 2019 - January 10th, 2020
Mid-show reception: November 2nd, 2-4pm

Weather is an expression of the true force of nature. Despite advances in technology, wind and rain delays our flights, snow closes our institutions, and overexposure to the sun’s ultraviolet rays damages our DNA. Weather events change the face of our planet; the last ice age covered our northern hemisphere, volcanic eruptions can lead to ash clouds which remain in our stratosphere for years, and hurricanes alter the shape of our coastlines. A major challenge in conceptualizing our future on other planets is the challenge of weather; in environments like Mars without rain, massive dust storms envelope the whole planet for weeks.

Despite the problems that it may cause us, weather is often a joy of life. It’s our favorite excuse to take the afternoon off, and provides some of Earth’s most breathtaking moments.

- Marnie Benney, Exhibition Curator
