On February 6th, tomorrow, the traveling museum exhibition Environmental Impact will open at Saint Mary’s College Museum of Art in Moraga, California. David J. Wagner, L.L.C. produced this exhibition with the purpose of 1) recognizing, documenting, and sharing the work of leading contemporary artists who chose to focus their work on global as well as local environmental issues; and 2) heightening public awareness and concern about the intentional or unintentional consequences of human action or inaction.
Environmental Impact brings together 75 works of art that address numerous ominous environmental issues through a variety of media, including photography, sculpture, and print. Curator David Wagner draws upon a diverse range of artists whose pieces are hard-hitting and propel the Environmental Movement forward. During the opening reception on February 14th, seven of these esteemed artists will take part in a panel session to discuss their work, motivation, and the power of art.
Saint Mary’s College Museum of Art is the final stop of the exhibition’s inaugural tour that premiered September 1, 2013 in Canton, Ohio. Environmental Impact will be on exhibit through April 3, 2016. You can learn more about the exhibition here.
