The National Weather Center Biennale
April 22 – June 2
The National Weather Center Biennale is the first exhibition of its kind: an international juried exhibition featuring art about weather and the role it plays in shaping our lives. Sponsored by the National Weather Center, the Fred Jones Jr. Museum of Art and the Norman Arts Council, the exhibition will be staged in the dramatic 244,000-square-foot National Weather Center. The biennale launched with an international call for entries in three categories on Earth Day, April 22, 2012.
The exhibition officially opens Earth Day, April 22, 2013. The exhibition is juried by guests Christoph Heinrich, the Frederick and Jan Mayer Director of the Denver Art Museum; Spencer Finch, an internationally-renowned American artist specializing in glass and light installations; and Jacqui Jeras, a broadcast meteorologist, formerly of CNN. Additional information is available on the biennale’s website at www.nwcbiennale.org.
