The Skies are for All: Ruskin and Climate Change

A lifetime of observing the skies led John Ruskin to conclude that human activities were damaging the environment.

The exhibited works are drawn from The Ruskin, Lancaster University, and the Royal Society, London, a Fellowship of many of the world’s most eminent scientists and the oldest scientific academy in continuous existence.

The Ruskin is closed to the public during the building renovation.
