Update: 3rd Annual Climate Change Art Show


Greetings 3rd Annual Climate Change Art Exhibit Participants--

We are excited about the upcoming climate show and are greatly appreciative of your participation. Here we would like to discuss a few important issues.

Students. Since we now have a Student Division of the show, with a separate judging and prize, we have a section on the entry form with the choice of "Adult" or "Student."  If this is completed by our artists, it will be easier for us to assign pieces for judging and prize distribution.

Extinction Rebellion.  As a bit of good news, it appears the climate movement finally has a recognizable symbol.  The Extinction Rebellion (XR) movement has done myriad climate protests and other actions throughout Europe and in the United States.  Their symbol is that of an hourglass within a circle, representing the very short time the science says we have to complete decarbonization.  And we mention it here also, as we think some artists may wish to incorporate the XR symbol in their art.  Here is the symbol:













Spread the Word.  We know that anthropogenic climate change is an existential threat.  Therefore, it is important that our art show reach as many citizens as possible.  Thus, it is vital that all artists spread the word about the show to their colleagues, students, friends and family.  This is one of the most effective methods of increasing entries in the event.  The flyer below is very useful for this effort.  We are very appreciative of your help in this work.

















Installation/Interactive Display.  We hope to use the accessory stairwell and landings at the Waco Winery for a larger exhibit, designed to be educational and hopefully interactive.  We have some scientific ideas but we would like to collaborate with one or more of our artists on this project.  We will offer some funding to cover the costs.  If interested, please email immediately at anorthc@aol.com.

We hope everyone is busy visualizing their piece or constructing it, and we wish all participants the best of luck.  Please remember that relevance to anthropogenic climate change is an extremely important criterion in the judging.  Please feel free to email anorthc@aol.com with any questions.
