Add another biennial to the calendar, but one with a twist—or do we mean twister? The National Weather Center Biennale, the “first national juried exhibition featuring art about weather”, due to take place in April 2013, is looking for meteorologically minded submissions by 1 October. Not only will the biennial award $25,000 in total prizes to the best in atmospheric paintings, photography and works on paper, but the organisers (the National Weather Center and the Fred Jones Jr. Museum of Art at the University of Oklahoma, as well as the Norman Arts Council) have pulled together an impressive panel of judges: the installation artist Spencer Finch; Christoph Heinrich, the director of the Denver Art Museum; and Jacqui Jeras, a meteorologist who has appeared on channels including CNN. Never has knowing the difference between a cumulonimbus and a cirrostratus cloud been so important.
