april school vacation week at pem earth week photoThis spring, just in time for Earth Day, the Peabody Essex Museum (PEM) presents two exhibitions and special April School Vacation Week programming that explore the climate crisis and our role in it.

Climate Action: Inspiring Change (April 16, 2022 - June 25, 2023) is a timely and urgent exhibition that explores how we can transform the climate crisis into hope for our shared future.

It brings together dynamic contemporary art, hands-on experiences and inspiring works by youth artists to help guide us toward making a difference for the planet. Konstantin Dimopoulos: The Blue Trees is an environmental call to action in the form of a participatory installation.

Using a biologically-safe watercolor and a team of community volunteers, the artist temporarily transforms a selection of trees on PEM's campus to focus our attention on the growing issue of deforestation and other threats to trees around the globe.

Installation will begin on April 20, 2022, just as PEMís April School Vacation Week: Earth Week - Art in Action kicks off. Visit for programming details.

Climate Action: Inspiring Change | Opens April 16
Konstantin Dimopoulos: The Blue Trees | Begins April 20
April School Vacation Week: Earth Week - Art in Action | April 20Ė22

On view in PEMís Dotty Brown Art & Nature Center, Climate Action: Inspiring Change highlights local and regional climate issues and opportunities.

Most of the 29 featured artists are based in New England ó including works by nine award-winning youth who participated in the Climate Hope: Transforming Crisis international student art contest in 2020 organized by Bow Seat Ocean Awareness Programs.

The exhibition also benefited from the advice of experts with local research and environmental advocacy groups. Leveraging creativity, science and participation to raise awareness about the underlying issues of climate change, this exhibition focuses on known solutions, including Indigenous practices, to foster action.

Climate Action: Inspiring Change is presented by PEM in partnership with The Climate Museum in New York, the first museum in the nation dedicated to the climate crisis.
