Bobbie Benson has created 12 Climate Heroes out of clay. They are men and women from around the world who have made important contributions to figure out solutions to climate change. Her goal was to make them whimsical and yet allow the heroes to speak their truth about activism and Climate Change. Benson believes that perhaps through artistic creativity, more minds can be persuaded to become environmental activists, all day, NCAR, 1850 Table Mesa Drive, Boulder; free; 303-497-2570 or scied.ucar.edu/exhibits/community-art-program.
