      Our Planet – Art Exhibition on the Environment in a Changing Climate

      “Our Planet” is a unique art exhibition created by 16 accomplished Colorado artists depicting how climate change is affecting our lives and environment. The objective of this art exhibition is to engage people differently on the subject of climate change by creating art that draws them into the subject visually and emotionally; connecting them to real life experiences and scientific understandings about what is going on today. For each work of art there is an artist statement that describes, in the artist’s words, the relationship between their art and what’s happening or can be done to address climate change. Thus, this show is not your typical art exhibition, albeit the artists’ works are beautiful on their own, but also an emotionally impactful experience and a learning opportunity. Viewers often come away with a sense of awe and wanting to do something more to change what is happening to our planet.


      The artists exhibiting paintings in the show include:


      Cliff Austin                       Sina March


      Rick Brogan                      Susan McKelvy


      Carole Buschmann          Pushpa Sunder Mehta
