From now through September 1, the Field Museum is hosting an exhibit that addresses the crux of climate change. Melting Ice - A Hot Topic: Envisioning Change brings together 26 contemporary artists whose work responds to the threats posed by melting polar ice caps. Gilles Mingasson's photo (above), shows the village of Shishmaref in Alaska, where residents are slated to become some of the first refugees of global warming in the Arctic. More information and photos below.

The photograph above, by Fred Ivar Ultsi Klemetsen, shows weakened reindeer heards in Norway searching for grass that's hard to find due to increased snowfall from global warming. The exhibition includes photographs, oil paintings, sculpture, and video installations. For more information, click here.

Melting Ice was organized by the Natural World Museum in partnership with the United Nations Environment Programme.
