Jill Pelto’s ’15, ’18G watercolor and colored pencil creation “Current” is Time magazine’s cover for its special July issue that focuses on climate change. Her cover is an artistic rendering of information about climate change. Pelto earned degrees in both studio art and earth and climate sciences.
“I hope that my art encourages audiences to connect with science in ways that are emotionally relevant,” she says. “Art is a powerful platform to ground climate change discussion in everyday life and culture.”
