ARTPIL / Prescription .056
Deep into Summer

 

Deep into summer with heat waves and record temperatures, wild fires and fire tornados. Climate change is asserting itself through environmental hazards. Less and less here to deny. Our thoughts go out to those affected.

Here is today’s edition of Prescriptions, our look back on the week in the arts.
