Museums as Climate Actors
Please join the Frankenthaler Climate Initiative's leadership, including representatives from the Helen Frankenthaler Foundation, RMI, and Environment & Culture Partners, for a moderated discussion about the pursuit of carbon neutrality in the arts. The conversation will explore the purpose and impact of the Frankenthaler Climate Initiative, the cultural sector’s role in climate action, and the challenges and opportunities in addressing the impacts and costs of existing buildings, aging systems, and approaches to resilience. The conversation is directed to cultural institutions, environmental advocates, and funders interested in taking bold climate action.

Accelerating climate action across every sector of society requires extraordinary commitment to changes in energy use. The Frankenthaler Climate Initiative has already awarded more than $5 million and pledged another $5 million to support the nation’s visual arts museums in taking important steps to energy efficiency and clean energy generation and to lowering the sector’s and the nation's carbon footprint.

Moderated by Jules Kortenhorst, the Chief Executive Officer of RMI, the discussion will include Elizabeth Smith, Executive Director of the Helen Frankenthaler Foundation, Victor Olgyay, AIA, Principal of RMI’s Carbon Free Buildings Practice, and Sarah Sutton, CEO of Environment & Culture Partners, with introductory remarks by Frederick Iseman, President of the Helen Frankenthaler Foundation.
