TVAA’s Earth Day Exhibit

2017 Earth Day Poster

April 3 – 28, 2017
Reception Sunday, April 22, 2-4 pm

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 once again celebrates Earth Day this April with an exhibit of art inspired by our concern for environmental issues.
