NEW WINDSOR—Meg Webster’s new site-specific installation entitled Growing under Solar Panels (2018) is now on view at Storm King Art Center in New Windsor, NY.

The installation is part of the exhibition, “Indicators: Artists on Climate Change,” which features works by artists who explore the impacts of the changing climate in ways that incorporate scientific, cultural, and aesthetic perspectives. Artists reveal how the acts of making and viewing art differ in both approach and effect from research, advocacy, or reportage on this multifaceted subject. Both indoor and outdoor installations, including pieces newly created for the exhibition at Storm King, illuminate the threats of a changing climate to our biological world and to humanity.

Participating artists include: David Brooks, Dear Climate, Mark Dion, Ellie Ga, Justin Brice Guariglia, Allison Janae Hamilton, Jenny Kendler, Maya Lin, Mary Mattingly, Mike Nelson, Steve Rowell, Gabriela Salazar, Tavares Strachan, Meg Webster, and Hara Woltz.
