Climate scientists and environmental experts show that when we focus on restoring our Earth we can solve multiple issues at once. This multi-media art exhibit addresses the environmental crises we face, while we envision a new future.
We grapple with the concept of making work about the environment, which is simply always out of our grasp. But the scales have tipped and the illusion has been dissolved: environmental deterioration is here. We see it presently with increasingly severe natural disasters and unprecedented weather events. Then there are the latent effects, the dominoes we foresee (and especially burdensome, those we don’t foresee) falling in the future.
This gallery is a playbook of forced perspectives and light suggestions. It tells stories not just of the human journey, but of the rich, multispecies world that we actually are. As artmakers, we can challenge the individual, human journey in favor of biological interdependence and natural partnerships.
Art that is made for, by, and through the community can connect human and place, making us all take ownership in our geophysicality, in our own seismic entrenchment in earth systems. It can encourage us to co-exist and co-evolve.
How can we create experiences that provoke thought about the degradation of our planet, that spark activism? By showing art that considers other species and by occupying science, a pillar of facts and hope.
Admission is FREE for OSC members $21 for adults, $19 for seniors and students, and $15 for youth (ages 2-11).
