Although climate art is a relatively new concept, it’s starting to change the conversation people have about climate change, said Miranda Massie, the director of the Climate Museum, a nonprofit that’s aiming to build a physical museum dedicated to climate change in New York City.
“There’s now a burgeoning body of work in the climate art field across the artistic disciplines and media,” Massie said.
However, she added that it is premature to say that climate-focused artists have had any robust impact on policy discussion. But she sees it growing in the near future.
“As climate art starts to move the cultural shift on climate, we will see it have a policy impact,” Massie said.
