For United Nations World Environment Day 2007, the Natural World Museum in partnership with the United Nations Environment Programme(UNEP), produced an exhibition that addresses the theme of Climate Change from a global perspective. Melting Ice / A Hot Topic, features paintings, sculptures, photography, multimedia, and conceptual installations from more than 40 international artists from 25 countries. The touring exhibition began June 2007 at the Nobel Peace Center in Oslo, Norway, and continued to the Bozar Center for Fine Arts in Brussels, Belgium. The exhibit is currently on display at the Salle d'Exposition in the principality of Monaco, and will also be presented at Chicago's Field Museum in spring 2008.
