A gallery show May 12 – June 11 at Arts Alliance Center provides environmentally themed art and music to the Bloomington Community.
This gallery exhibition, coordinated by Artists for Climate Awareness, is open to all artistic mediums and is meant to depict aspects of nature, environment, and climate change. Artistic expressions on display may be abstract or realistic and may consist of works that evoke experience such as: caring and hopes of preservation; depiction of changes over time; description of what has been loved and lost, “wake-up” call-to-action, and more. Climate art is intended to be a dialog-starter to raise public awareness and thought about climate change.
Artists for Climate Awareness organized the display of art, while on May 12, IU Jacobs School of Music students working on the Conserve Bloomington project introduced their musical composition of nature sounds recorded in and around Bloomington, IN. The music has been developed in conjunction with an innovation grant from Jacobs School of Music. A reception for all events and activities was on Friday, May 12 at the Arts Alliance Center in College Mall. (See hours of operation.)
All members of Artists for Climate Awareness, Bloomington Watercolor Society, Upland Plein Air, Bloomington Portrait Group, and Arts Alliance are eligible for the gallery show.
