ABOUT THE ART OF SUSTAINABILITY
The Art of Sustainability showcases artwork that explores sustainability themes. In an era of climate change, strained resources, and inequality, change is coming. Which changes in which arenas – those are the exciting and terrifying questions. Art has the power to reflect where we’ve been, where we’re at, and where we could go. The Art of Sustainability seeks to share artworks that shine a light on issues of environmental damage and preservation, cultural and lifestyle changes, and economic and social justice that all swirl under the header “sustainability”. The goal of The Art of Sustainability is to serve as an anthology or set of digital “exhibits” of eco-art, while also connecting to eco-advocates, non-profits and others who are creating change in key sustainability spheres and offering inspiration for taking your own actions to create a sustainable future.
So, please explore The Art of Sustainability, get inspired, support the artists, pick your path, and take action!
