Please join us at Slo Curio on First Friday September 6th from 6-9pm for the opening reception of 'Interwoven Arctic', a collection of weaving by Colorado artist Kim Mirus where she merges art & science into a stunning visual context to explore the effects of climate change.
About the artist:
Kim Mirus is an artist, educator, and craftsperson currently weaving visualizations of environmental and social justice statistics using traditional craft techniques. Working at the intersection of art and science, Kim strives to subtly embed scientific data in new visual contexts. After researching our changing climate firsthand through an artist residency expedition near the North Pole, Kim created these weavings in response to retreating glaciers, declining ice masses, and the changing Arctic as visual symbols of our impact on the world around us. The pieces in Interwoven Arctic are each handwoven with sustainable fibers and are inspired by these remote places never inhabited by humans that are nonetheless being directly impacted by the rapidly changing environment.
A portion of the sales proceeds from this exhibit will be donated to EarthJustice, a nonprofit legal organization defending our environment.
