Environmental Impact is an exhibition which aims to recognize, document, and share the work of leading contemporary artists who choose to focus their work on global as well as local environmental issues and to heighten public awareness and concern about the degradation of diverse environments through the power of art.
Traditional art generally depicts nature in all of its glory, often in beautiful, pristine conditions. The 50 paintings, photographs, prints, installations, and sculptures in Environmental Impact are different because they deal with ominous environmental issues ranging from industrial scale resource consumption and development to oil spills, the perils of nuclear energy, global warming, and many other phenomena that impact people and other inhabitants which populate the planet today.
The exhibition draws upon a diverse range of artists whose works are not only hard-hitting, but which also propel the Environmental Movement in the modern age.
