An artist’s eye for a world at risk

Artists illustrate the science and sentiments of environmental movement

By Elizabeth Miller

You probably haven’t been to Antarctica to see a desert made of ice and the microbial life revealed as that ice retreats.

You may have a few words to express the depth of frustration at a legacy of Nadia Guthmann.

So they could just kind of roam free.”
