Envisioning Strategies & Solutions Exhibit at Art Works Downtown, February 3 - March 25, 2023
Date: Thursday, March 16, 2023
Time: Gallery Open Thursday - Saturday 1:00pm - 8:00pm
Curated by Deanna Pindell and in collaboration with Women Eco Artists Dialog (WEAD).
Interactive and often playful, these eco-artworks offer inspiring visions, strategies, and solutions to help our communities build resilience for our changing climate. Each of these widely accomplished artists have created projects in service to the world beyond the gallery.
Several are games that help us solve regional issues; others combine play, work, and education to restore beaches, riparian habitats, and redwood forests. Our love of trees, grief over rising seas and extinctions, concerns about waste, and passions for the cultural histories of our local places are each addressed in enterprising community-engagement designed by artists and architects. Viewers are encouraged to envision a most desirable future.
