Environmental Justice Art Exhibit

Hi! We are currently working on a project about the intersections of environmentalism and social justice. We want to look at how art can materialize the entanglement of humans and nature and the implications of that relationship as it is lived in our world.

Our goal is to create a collective art installation and gallery show to bring the Wesleyan community together. We are interested in how art can be used as a unifying force and to facilitate interactions between social justice/environmental activism, art focused on bridging gaps.

Art submissions should address the relationship between Environmental Issues and Social Justice; they can be in the form of drawings, paintings, music, spoken word, written pieces, expressive movement, anything that you feel expresses your ideas! For performance pieces or other types of artistic expression that cannot be sent through email, please submit a proposal. We hope that we can create a space for collaboration and coalition-building with different groups across campus as we build this collection together.

Please send submissions (either art or proposal for performance) to dtpope[at]wesleyan[dot]eduowon[at]wesleyan[dot]edu, or klowen[at]wesleyan[dot]edu. The deadline is April 8th! Our tentative dates for this gallery are 4/14 or 4/21 and location is TBA.

Submission Deadline: Friday, April 8
