EARTH  ACTION  ART SHOW

Raw climate data can be overwhelming and difficult to internalize. We believe art can provide a valuable perspective to help us connect with climate change. If you have climate or environmentally themed art, we would love to showcase it!

The focus of Earth Action Initiative is direct action, consequently we conceived the art show as an opportunity to raise funds for mini action grants. Following the art show these mini action grants will be awarded in our local community through a proposal process decided upon by the Earth Action Initiative Organizing Committee. 

In addition to many more works from local artists, we are pleased to announce the 2020 Earth Action Art Show will also feature an interactive ocean plastics piece by Richard Lang and Judith Selby Lang. The Langs have been huge supporters of our conference and mission since its inception, we are truly grateful for their continued participation in and advocacy for environmental justice.  

 

Richard and Judith have been collecting bits of plastic from Kehoe Beach, Point Reyes National Seashore in Northern California, since 1999. They have rambled 1000 meters of tideline of this one beach hundreds of times to gather plastic debris washing out of the Pacific Ocean and from this one beach have collected over two tons of material. By carefully collecting and "curating" the bits of plastic, they fashion it into works of art that matter-of-factly show, with minimal artifice, the material as it is.
