Earth Song Refrain: BIPOC Artists on the Climate and Environment (2023-2024)

This exhibition presents the perspectives of visual artists and poets of color on the climate crisis and environmental challenges threatening the Earth’s health.  Inspired by Michael Jackson’s environmental anthem “Earth Song,” this group exhibition reflects a tradition of Black and Brown artists using art to address issues related to mankind’s behavior and relationship to the planet, including the threatened beauty of a healthy planet, and the consequences of global warming, environmental racism, and climate change.  In centering the narratives, perspectives, and experiences of people of color, this exhibition seeks to inspire conversations and considerations about the disproportionate impact of the climate crisis on communities of color around the world.
