Earth Speaks IV
The EARTH has spoken loudly in 2017! Art has always been a powerful tool for expressing ideas and feelings about issues of concern.

Through art and creative expression, the exhibit hopes to shine a light on:
- Man-made issues that pose a threat to our planet (litter, global warming, pesticides, GMOs, water pollution, over-fishing, deforestation, fracking)
- Environmental Disasters (tsunamis, hurricanes, oil spills, smog, nuclear meltdowns)
- Ideas for solutions (solar and wind energy, bio fuels, reduced carbon footprint, recycling, tree planting, organic farming)
Application Deadline: February 2, 2018.
