July 18 – August 12, 2007
The topic of global warming has seen a surge of interest in the public arena due to films such as “An Inconvenient Truth,” large scale campaigns by corporate citizens like Richard Branson of the Virgin Group, as well as recent natural disasters such as Hurricane Katrina and the Southeast Asian tsunami of 2004. In Canada, there continues to be public and political debate over the Kyoto Accord, and more broadly, what the Country’s role should be on the global stage, as a leader or follower, on this critical issue.
How does all this information and debate impact us as individuals? How can we bring these political issues to a more personal level, to foster both discussion and action?
Propeller Center for the Visual Arts invites artists to submit work, in any medium, that depicts the impact of global warming, either in the present or an imagined future. Our hope is that through images, we can engage the public in a personal discussion on how we, our communities and our country are impacted by the threat of climate change.
