Description

The David Brower Center is pleased to present Art/Act: Youth, an exhibition showcasing work by current Berkeley High School students that examines the intersection of environmentalism and art.

In the future, practices and decisions concerning the environment will be made by the youth of today. The chosen body of work for Art/Act: Youth gives insight into what young dynamic minds perceive about the current and future state of our planet. The exhibition underscores the Brower Center’s vision to nurture young environmental artists, with the goal of creating a community to support and inspire each other’s work, and become a force for educating the general public on environmental issues.

Art/Act: Youth opens Tuesday, August 1 and closes Friday, September 15 with a celebratory reception from 6-8 pm.

Other programming includes a professional and artistic development workshop led by established arts educator Susan Wolf, in collaboration with local artists who have previously exhibited at the Brower Center: Andras Ladai, Jenny Balisle and Paul Taylor. And, we’ll host a lecture about the importance of art and environmental advocacy by David Liittschwager, a Brower Center featured artist and National Geographic contributor. For more information about the programming, including how to RSVP, please keep an eye on our website.
