Since its launch in the spring of 2016, Beyond Polar Bears, a collaboration between The New School and 350.org has captured the imagination of over eighty artists; students, faculty members and alumni from The New School and Parsons School of Design. Of the 142 works submitted, 80 visual expressions were assembled, comprised of gifs, video, memes, diptychs and single images dedicated to interpret the issue of climate change from an intimate perspective.
