About the Exhibition

Burning Ice explores impacts and causes of climate change from Richmond and East Palo Alto to the Arctic Circle.  Artworks also honor nature and those who advocate on our behalf.  A range of media from drawings, paintings, prints and photography to ceramics, glass, mixed media, textiles and a site-specific installation.  

Artists: Amy Balkin, Jesus Barazza, Barbara Boissevain, Victor Castillo, Melanie Cervantes, Brett Cook, Cheryl Patrice Derricotte, Linda Gass, Maile Iwanaga, John Kurtyka, Martin Machado, Lucia Maldonado, Karla X. Navarro, Joseph Rodriguez, Simone Shin, Khadijah Silva, Kim Stringfellow, Holly Van Hart, Wesley T. Wright. Special project with De Anza College art and humanities students.

Burning Ice is offered in conjunction with Silicon Valley Reads 2016.  The program features two books with the theme, Chance of Rain; the impact of climate change on our lives.  The featured books are Memory of Water by Emmi Itäranta and Sherwood Nation by Ben Parzybok.  This annual community program encourages everyone in Santa Clara County to read the same book, at the same time, and talk about it.  Presented by the Santa Clara County Office of Education, Santa Clara County Library District and the San Jose Public Library Foundation.
