In the summer of 2015, the MJM&AG exhibited Global Warning! It featured art works made by students from Albert E. Peacock Collegiate and Riverview Collegiate, which were comprised of re-purposed refuse that was destined for the landfill and collected by the students.

This exhibition, which explored the ramifications of our consumer culture, was a collaborative project involving the following city-based organizations: Moose Jaw South Central Regional Intersectoral Committee (AXIS), Beautifi Moose Jaw, the City of Moose Jaw, the schools of Prairies South School Division No. 210, Visual Art Club Project 104, and the Moose Jaw Museum & Art Gallery.

The exhibition Movies for a Pulsing Earth is the culmination of years of travel, observation and artmaking by Kent Tate in its presentation of video, audio and sculpture. Exploring places both far and near, real or imagined, Tate captures these landscapes by camera over a span of time, filming them in motion and high definition. Images transition from one view to another, moving us through a sequence of visual experiences. As the viewer, we are held in time while we gaze upon something phenomenal. The messages are in the imagery and their meanings flood over us. Profoundly inspired by the beauty in nature and passionately concerned about the consequences human effect has on earth, Kent Tate is driven to share what he witnesses through his camera.
