Glacier memorial, melodrama, circus on Peninsula this weekend

An artistic memorial to disappearing glaciers, a melodrama in Sequim and a circus in Quilcene are among activities on tap this weekend on the North Olympic Peninsula.

• “Terminus: A Glacier Memorial Project,” will open at the Port Angeles Fine Arts Center, 1203 E. Lauridsen Blvd., today, with a reception from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m.

The exhibit was created in partnership with Olympic National Park, Washington’s National Park Fund and Discover Your Northwest and the arts center to serve as a tribute to the vanishing glaciers while inspiring conversations about climate change.

While the art is housed virtually on the park’s website, terminus.htm, most of it also will be exhibited at the fine arts center through Sept. 3. The center is open from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Thursdays through Sundays.

Other exhibit information can be found at
