Climate Art Exhibit Creation

Green Change and friends organized a special Climate Art Exhibit for the 2019 Mill Valley Fall Arts Festiva, to engage more people to go green and fight climate change. We collaborated with these talented artists and dozens of volunteers to create this year’s featured presentation: Ann Dodge, Tess Felix, Fabrice Florin, Janey Fritsche, Al Grumet, Aurora Mahassine and Randy Rosenberg.

 

Together, we aimed to transform the redwood grove at Old Mill Park into a creative space for climate action. To that end, we prepared these artworks and activities for this special presentation:

• Ocean Plastic Portraits - stunning portraits made from recycled materials found on beaches

• Seeds of Change - a multi-dimensional living art installation rising 20 feet up in the redwood trees

• Keeping Score - a fun corn hole game about our food choices

• Hitting Home - an origami house activity to address our energy choices

• Alchemy of Fire - mixed-media paintings about the threat of wildfires

• This Island Earth - paintings celebrating the beauty and spiritual power of the nature

• Earth Bike - a unique art float created to inspire people to go green

• Green Change - an information table for learning about climate action

 

Special thanks to our gracious hosts Erma Murphy and Sylvia Barsky at MVFAF -- and to all the volunteers who so generously helped us present our work!
