Fine Art in the Summertime by Claire Lambe

Going north to the picturesque town of Athens you will find a particularly relevant exhibition with the environment at its center. In this era of melting glaciers and looming extinctions, the Athens Cultural Center presents a multi-​​media exploration of the many meanings of ice in history, popular culture and the artists’ imagination. Curated by Carrie Feder, the show is a visual examination of diverse artifacts and imagery relating to ice in all its forms: polar exploration, the ice industry, sports, utilitarian products, advertising, literature, decorative objects, the environment and art.
