The Mural Brigade is embarking on our next project exploring the dynamic relationships between art, humanity, and the ELEMENTS: EARTH, WATER, FIRE, AIR. This open theme invites meaningful creative interpretations of contemporary society and our relationship with the environment from a variety of perspectives.
The three focus areas of ELEMENTS are:
1. Location-specific environmental issues, such as the California Wildfires or the Flint Water Crisis
2. Creative, sustainable infrastructure such as an innovative way to divert/reuse campus plastic waste, alternative power, a way to reuse storm/gray water, or a plant-material mural to clean the air, that will lessen the eco-footprint of the campus
3. Art that promotes environmental consciousness from lenses such as consumption, commoditization of natural resources, intersectionality and human rights( Ex. EcoFeminism, Environmental Racism), and more.
