Beauty and the Beast: California Wildflowers and Climate Change


RENTAL FEE: $2,500 + shipping for an 8-week booking

SIZE: 175-250 linear feet

SECURITY: Moderate


Breathtaking photographs address climate change and its effect on a universal symbol of beauty: the wildflower.

Exquisite photographs of California's wildflowers bring awareness to the beauty of the Golden State - as well as to the dangers facing our natural habitats from climate change. All geographic regions of California are highlighted in this stunning show, from the high alpine "rock gardens" above 11,000 feet in the Sierra Nevada Mountains to Death Valley National Park's below-sea-level environment.

The exhibit features 7 different sections: Mountains, Coastal, Desert, and Central Valley regions, the power of fire and renewal, a behind-the-scenes look at capturing these images, and an overview of California's geographic regions - those diverse and delicately balanced ecosystems supporting spectacular explosions of nature’s color. Most importantly, these beautiful images address how climate change and other human impacts effect California's wildflowers.

Photographers Rob Badger and Nita Winter are based in the Bay Area and have been been capturing powerful images for over three decades. Their work has been seen in galleries throughout California including the Thoreau Center for Sustainability in San Francisco, the G2 Gallery in Venice, CA, and featured in publications such as American Photo, Los Angeles Times, Natural Home, New York Times, OMNI, Sunset, Sierra Wilderness Society, Time and the Washington Post. Their new book, Beauty and the Beast: California Wildflowers and Climate Change, will soon be released.

The exhibition includes:

  • 52 framed color photographs of wildflowers ranging in size from 16" x 20" to 45" x 55" and representing California's Coastal, Mountain, Desert, Central Valley/Gorman regions, as well as fire-related and behind-the-scenes sections
  • Natural history text panels featuring maps and essays focused on the state's botanical landscape, climate change, and more
  • Equipment used by the photographers in the field
  • Hi- and lo-tech interactives
  • Exhibition press kit with digital images
  • Suggested programming ideas and resources

Beauty and the Beast: California Wildflowers and Climate Change, an exhibition by Rob Badger and Nita Winter, originated at the San Francisco Public Library and is traveled by Exhibit Envoy.
