The Last Glacier
The Last Glacier collection began in 2010 as a response to the rapidly retreating glaciers of Glacier National Park in Montana, USA. Over the course of four years artists Todd Anderson, Bruce Crownover, and Ian van Coller hiked through valleys' up streams and over mountains to visit the last glaciers in the "crown jewel of the continent". Their work resulted in artworks and a limited edition artist book that shares the wonders of the park's glaciers while simultaneously serving as a historical document of climate change in Glacier National Park. One of the mightiest forces of the natural world revealed themselves as fragile and more responsive to human impacts than ever imagined. The Last Glacier collective has since expanded by working with scientific collaborators on like-minded, convergent research projects in Iceland, Tanzania, and Colorado.
