“Art To Green” is a series of juried group exhibitions and events, part of the “Green Wave” initiative, dedicated to the Global Warming and Climate Change starting in September, 2008.
“By bringing art and science together, we can change the way people do things in the world.”
“Art to Green” at 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 weariness about environmental problems, global warming and climate change.
Through art exhibitions, performing events and films, artists, scientists and businessmen can pioneer an interdisciplinary approach to raising awareness and bringing environmental problems into focus.
Organizations, universities and companies will be invited to promote their eco-friendly programs, activities, events and products.
The exhibitions and related events will be held at Alfa Art Gallery starting in September 2008 and are open to all artists supporting the “Art to Green” idea. Through photography, video, sound and painting each artwork should be the artist’s personal commentary about the environmental issues facing society
EXHIBITION PARTICIPATION DETAILS:
All forms of art from the realist to the surreal to abstract and visionary are welcome. We invite artists to submit their interpretations in support of the goal of making our planet a better place through the broad spectrum of ecological awareness and activism, in short, “Art to Green”.
