In his new site-specific commissioned installation, Primordial Refuge, local artist Aaron Glasson explores the concept of home in another climate reality.

With climate change being a pressing issue that impacts people all over the world, Glasson’s thought-provoking show provides innovative solutions for how homes could adapt to fluctuating weather conditions. Featuring sculpture, installation, and painting, the exhibition offers visitors a unique way to engage and contribute to the continuing discourse about climate change while considering the role of art in today’s world.

As part of this exhibition, Glasson will build an intersectional ecological library for our community! Want to be part of this project?
