Through a display of breathtaking images by California photographers Rob Badger and Nita Winter, “Beauty and the Beast: California Wildflowers and Climate Change” addresses the effects of changing weather patterns on a universal symbol of beauty: the wildflower.
Featuring over 45 landscape photographs taken across the state, this traveling exhibition is a visual survey of California’s diverse and delicately-balanced ecosystems that reveals the effects of global warming and other human impacts on our native botanical plants.
Based in the San Francisco Bay Area, Rob Badger and Nita Winter have been capturing the essence of the human spirit and the transcendent beauty of the natural world in images for over 30 years as WinterBadger Fine Art. Their work has been featured in numerous galleries and publications including the British Museum of Natural History, American Photo, New York Times, Sunset and Washington Post, among others.
“Beauty and the Beast: California Wildflowers and Climate Change” will be open Oct. 31, 2017 through Jan. 28, 2018 at the California Museum before continuing on its statewide tour by Exhibit Envoy through 2019.
