Climate Signals, five-borough public art installation on Governors Island


Throughout September and October, prominent, unexpected messages about climate change dot the New York City landscape, sparking curiosity and raising awareness. The Climate Museum, in partnership with the Mayor’s Office - Climate Policy and Programs, will present Climate Signals, a multi-site outdoor installation by Justin Brice Guariglia.

The exhibition on Governors Island consists of two large (11’ x 7’), solar-powered highway signs with phrases that draw passers-by into the climate conversation.

Eight more signs will appear in parks across the city in a range of neighborhoods, including some of those most vulnerable to climate change, and will flash translations into several of the many languages of NYC.

The two signs on Governors Island are located at Castle Williams and Yankee Pier.
