CLOSED MARCH 15-28: Responding to Climate Change through Art presented by Commonwheel Artists Co-op at Commonwheel Artists Co-op, Manitou Springs CO

Climate change is one of the topics that makes people want to turn off and disengage. It shouldn’t be that way. So, what can art do?

IN SUPPORT OF MAINTAINING AND MANAGING THE SPREAD OF THE CORONAVIRUS, AND OUT OF CONCERN FOR OUR STAFF AND VALUED CUSTOMERS, THE COMMONWHEEL WILL BE CLOSING EFFECTIVE MARCH 15 – 28, 2020

Manitou Springs Art Council (MSAC) will curate a gallery exhibition in March of 2020 to be held at the Commonwheel Artists Co-op Gallery in Manitou Springs.

Sometimes, you need more than just the facts and data to really bring home the reality of the impeding climate crisis. You need to make an emotional connection – and what better way to do it than through the power of art?

With that thought in mind, the Manitou Springs Arts Council (MSAC) has invited artists to use their talents to create art around the theme of the climate crisis and frame it in ways that result in emotional, beautiful, and stirring images.

This gallery show offers a chance to use art to create an emotional story that can inspire people to promote environmental awareness. During the month of March artists will be able to share this message in ways to ignite a passion in the viewers to help prevent further environmental damage.
