The Tempestry Project
Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, this gallery - originally intended to hang Earth Day 2020 at the Noyes Cultural Arts Center - has been moved online and can be viewed as photos below.
The Tempestry Project is a global S.T.E.A.M. movement to visualize climate change using textile bar graphs - a.k.a. Tempestries. Beginning Earth Day 2019, volunteers in Evanston, Illinois, have been creating a collection of Tempestries. The goal: to illustrate Chicagoland temperature data from 1949-2018. Each participant knitted or crocheted at least one year/Tempestry.
IN ORDER TO PREVENT THE SPREAD OF THE CORONA VIRUS THE OPENING OF THE EXHIBIT HAS BEEN POSTPONED. FURTHER INFORMATION WILL BE AVAILABLE AFTER APRIL 30, 2020
Admission to the Noyes Gallery is free and open to the public. These programs are sponsored by the City of Evanston and supported in part by a grant from the Illinois Arts Council, a state agency.
