The Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum and Western Connecticut State University have partnered to present “Weather Report: A Symposium on Art and Weather” from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 19, at Ives Concert Hall in White Hall on the university’s Midtown campus, 181 White St. in Danbury. This event is free, but pre-registration is required at www.wcsu.edu/artweather .
The symposium is in conjunction with the exhibition “Weather Report,” which will be on view from Sunday, Oct. 6, 2019, to Sunday, March 29, 2020, at The Aldrich, 258 Main St. in Ridgefield.
“Weather Report” presents a group of diverse international artists who reference weather in provocative ways through sculpture, drawing, painting, installation and video. Works of art will manifest phenomena such as clouds, wind, rain, snow, temperature extremes, storms and visibility, while individual works will approach subjects that include climate change, the emotional effects of weather, the relationship between the atmosphere and the earth’s oceans, weather as a metaphor for turmoil and change, and weather’s impact on history and politics.
