EcoArt: Envisioning Strategies and Solutions
Curated by Deanna Pindell

In collaboration with Women Eco Artists Dialog (WEAD)

Interactive and often playful, these eco-artworks offer inspiring visions, strategies, and solutions to help our communities build resilience for our changing climate. Each of these widely accomplished artists have created projects in service to the world beyond the gallery.

Several are games that help us solve regional issues; others combine play, work, and education to restore beaches, riparian habitats, and redwood forests. Our love of trees, grief over rising seas and extinctions, concerns about waste, and passions for the cultural histories of our local places are each addressed in enterprising community-engagement designed by artists and architects. Viewers are encouraged to envision a most desirable future.

Featuring artists:
Michele Guieu
Janette Kim
Lauren Elder
Juniper Harrower
Kent Manske and Nanette Wylde
Daniel McCormick and Mary O’Brien
Zach Pinelisa
Sharon Siskin
Lisa Zimmer-Chu
