About “Art to Green” exhibition at Alfa Art Gallery
“Bringing art and science together, we can change the way people do things in the world..."

Alfa Art Gallery is proud to announce the opening of the 3rd Art to Green” exhibition dedicated to Global Warming and Climate Change, part of the Green Wave initiatives at Alfa.
Alfa is committed to the idea that one salient image, sculpture or event can speak louder than volumes of scientific data and raise the public awareness about environmental problems, global warming and climate change.

Through art exhibitions, performing events and films, artists and scientists can pioneer an interdisciplinary approach to raising awareness and bringing environmental problems into focus.
The question we would like to discuss is 'how can we make New Brunswick a green city?'. Together we can unpack our intuitive ideas and explore the possibilities of making New Brunswick an environmentally progressive city. This will require forward thinking projects that involve everyone within the community. In order to move forward we should explore new views on relationships and situations; how one can fundamentally change this urban space. We believe that by linking art, community and the environment there are endless possibilities!
