The polar bear is melting

With COP21 ongoing and non-stop climate news and announcements as well as the fact that I am continually uncovering more attempts of creating art to engage people in the story of climate change.

The Toronto Star had an article about a melting polar bear which was created out of ice and allowed to melt over the course of time that COP 21 was being hosted.

Equiterre head Steven Guilbeault, pictured with one of the sculptures. The campaign in which the polar bear melted over the course of about three weeks was intended to raise awareness about the effects of climate change in the Arctic. It also coincided with the United Nations climate change conference in Paris, France.

The polar bear ice sculpture is part of the action that the environmental group Equiterre is doing.  Lucky you if you want to go see it, you do not have to travel all the way to Paris to see it since it is in Montreal….but you better go fast as it is also melting faster than expected.
