TVAA Downtown Gallery announces a call for entries (Due on March 20)
EARTH DAY April 03 – 28, 2017
Twenty million Americans took to the streets on April 22, 1970 to protest the deterioration of their environment due to the ravages of the industrial revolution. By the end of that year, the first Earth Day had led to the creation of the United States Environmental Protection Agency and the passage of the Clean Air, Clean Water, and Endangered Species Acts. By 1990, Earth Day was a global event, mobilizing 200 million people in 141 countries. Today, in spite of climate change deniers and well-funded lobbyists, Earth Day has become the largest secular observance in the world, celebrated by more than a billion people every year, and a day of action that changes human behavior and provokes policy changes.
The TVAA Gallery will once again celebrate Earth Day this April with an exhibit of art inspired by our concern for environmental issues. Work in any medium will be considered.
