About The Climate Gallery

Theory of Change

When we engage with art, we give ourselves time to check-in. Artists can take complex, multifaceted, ephemeral experiences and make them concrete. A single work can give us a specific place to start a conversation where we can engage our emotions, our sense of logic, our sense of illogic, our beliefs, our sense of self, and our sense of that which is external. Because of all of these reasons, we believe art is an extremely important key to understanding and communicating about the climate movement. 

Values

We strive for fair representation of artists and their art within their own cultural contexts.

We work urgently to amplify the unequal results of the ever-growing climate crisis.

We are all creative beings who employ creative problem-solving to enact change.

EXPERIENCE

The Gallery

By providing an online gallery for climate art, we’re creating a space that supports both artists and patrons. Some goals include:

  • Supporting artists by providing stipends to pay for their work
  • Increasing exposure of climate artists
  • Increasing interest in climate art through the innovative format
  • Removing geological barriers of participation in art
LEARN

Speaker Series

We strive to produce an intimate experience for Climate Gallery exhibition attendees. In addition to artwork showcase, we will invite our artists to personally share stories about their works.

Each day of the exhibit, one of our featured artists will give a talk about their work and perspective of climate activism. Following the talk, audience will have a chance to have conversations directly with the artist. 

ACT

Micro-grants

We are more than just education and conversation. We are directly funding climate organizations and community-based resiliency projects with micro-grants. 

A large portion of your ticket cost and donations goes to a fund that will be dispersed to support organizations that are on-the-ground doing decarbonization and environmental justice work.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is artivism?

Art·iv·ism: A portmanteau of the words “art” and “activism.” 

Artivism is an expression that engages viewers and participants beyond passive viewership and into action.

The term “artivism” originates with the Chicano movement in Los Angeles in the late 1960’s. We believe this word perfectly articulates the innate power of art to communicate, persuade, and engage in community dialogues. Today we’re applying it to our collective climate struggle.

Who are artivists?

We believe most artists are “artivists.” Creating work that has meaning and engages in societal topics is a form of activism that informs, engages, and creates conversation.
