For Earth Day 2016, Earth Day Network has teamed up with Art Works for Change, an Oakland-based arts organization. Art Works for Change creates contemporary art exhibitions that address critical social and environmental issues. They have created an online art exhibition for Earth Day 2016, featuring works from 35 invited artists, including Daniel Beltrá, Lori Nix, Ed Burtynsky, Chris Jordan, Alexis Rockman, Mary Mattingly, Thomas Hirschhorn, Ruben Ochoa, Guerra de la Paz and others. The exhibition also contains an Earth Day Network Featured Tour, which combines artwork from the exhibition with information about Earth Day and the campaigns of the Earth Day Network.
According to Art Works for Change, “Our collaboration with Earth Day Network is a unique opportunity to inspire action on urgent environmental issues. By combining the power of art with the global reach of Earth Day, we can amplify the call to action on issues of sustainability and build upon the momentum of the environmental movement.” The exhibition is presented in an innovative digital format that combines stunning images with unique, interactive features such as deep-zoom viewing, blog-style content, and an integrated social media campaign that empowers individuals to take action in their own lives.
