Welcome To Polar Year At PEM
In celebration of the International Polar Year, PEM is presenting two exhibitions of art and culture that highlight both the Arctic and the Antarctic: Polar Attractions, a contemporary art exhibit in the interactive Art and Nature Center, and To The Ends of The Earth, a major painting exhibition opening in November, 2008.
Through PEM’s online Polar Site, you can become a part of the dialogue about polar regions. The website features:
• Polar Ideas Blog: View images and read entries submitted by artists, writers, curators and adventurers. Respond by posting your own comments. Choose a keyword from the Polar Ideas signpost above to get started.
• Go Polar!: Online activities to be added regularly. Listen to sound clips from both poles, learn to fold polar origami, and take action to make a difference.
