Sierra Club — Images from the Human/Nature art show
On Thursday, 10 October we enjoyed the opening evening of our Human/Nature art show. Approximately 150 people attended and were treated to live music, belly dancing, poetry readings, food, and of course, many many wonderful works of art. Here are some photos from the opening event.
The show is open to the public now until Thanksgiving, Mondays through Fridays between 9:00 am and 5:00 pm. Come and visit, and bring your friends!
All artists who are selling their work have kindly agreed to donate a minimum of 50% of the sales to the Hoosier Chapter of the Sierra Club. Please contact email@example.com if you would like to discuss purchasing artwork from this show.
Artists from all over Indiana and beyond are exhibiting work reflecting on our human relationship with the natural world. We have also produced a chapbook on the same theme.
You can read and hear interviews with some of the artists, here.
In recent days, groups as diverse as the Indiana Energy Association, Hoosier Environmental Council, the Sierra Club and Citizens Action Coalition protested a moratorium, saying it could delay investments in clean energy and prompt energy companies to build in other states without similar restrictions.
A Sierra Club report on Rockport several years ago called it the sixth largest carbon polluter in the nation, citing EPA statistics estimating some 5.8 million pounds of air and water pollution in 2013.
