Art exhibit creates new way to find homes in changing environment

Survival Exhibit highlights the dangers of climate change

EUGENE, Ore. — With recent climate change reports, many people might wonder how could they survive if natural disasters became more common.

A new exhibit at the Museum of Natural and Cultural History tries to answer that question, with art.

In the Survival Architecture and the Art of Resilience, artists and architects create new and creative ways to find homes in a new environment.

The room is split up into four categories: visionary, circular, resilient and portable. Each theme creating ways you could live in a world forever changed by the environment.

Some pieces include portable sleeping bags and an origami shelter.

Kids visiting the exhibit can also try their hand in making their own models with pipe cleaners, recycled newspaper and cardboard.

The exhibit runs through August 25th.
