Thermochromic Pigment

Searching for a toolkit that connects visual art and climate? Explore TCI’s Thermochromic Pigment toolkit!

Our toolkit will introduce you to thermochromic pigment and allow you to visualize how heat impacts your local landscape.

This toolkit is the perfect activity to share within intergenerational group settings because it asks all participants to paint a cherished spot in their community. After painting, participants will expose their pieces to heat above 85 degrees and watch their landscapes “disappear.” This toolkit can open up dialogue about the invaluable places that make your community home, how these locations might be impacted by climate change, and the steps we can take to protect our communities.
