Beauty and the Beast: California Wildflowers and Climate Change – January 5 – March 10, 2019

 

“Beauty and the Beast: California Wildflowers and Climate Change” addresses the effects of changing weather patterns on a universal symbol of the Golden State’s beauty: the wildflower.

Through a display of more than 45 landscape photographs by Bay Area-based photographers Rob Badger and Nita Winter, this traveling exhibition is a visual survey of California’s diverse and delicately-balanced ecosystems that reveals the effects of global warming and other human impacts on our native plants. A large, colorful map of the state’s diverse botanical regions and a description of each was co-created with the California Native Plant Society.

Based in the San Francisco Bay Area, Rob Badger and Nita Winter have been capturing the essence of the human spirit and the transcendent beauty of the natural world in images for over 30 years as WinterBadger Fine Art. Their work has been featured in numerous galleries and publications including the British Museum of Natural History, American Photo, New York Times, Sunset and Washington Post, among others.

California Wildflowers and Climate Change” will continue on a statewide tour through Exhibit image2019 organized by Exhibit Envoy.
