Tempestry Project

Tempestry Project Display

To celebrate the 50th anniversary of Earth Day in April 2020, UC Davis Sustainability recruited volunteers to create a textile display that represents 50 years of climate change from 1970 to 2020.

Each temperature tapestry (or “Tempestry”) represents a year of daily high temperatures in Davis, CA, with January on the left side and December on the right of the Tempestry. Cooler colors (blues and greens) represent cooler temperatures while the reds are the highest temperatures. Learn more about the international Tempestry Project.

Please enjoy this virtual exhibit online and check back in for any new Tempestries additions, as well as details for a future in-person exhibit!
