September is an active month in the Bay Area for art and environmental action.
The Global Climate Action Summit will bring together leaders in the sciences, health, education, politics and engaged citizens in San Francisco September 12 – 14, 2018.
Affiliate events throughout the Bay Area, open to the public, are being hosted by diverse organizations and include exhibitions, talks, interactive events andÂ live music. On Saturday, September 8,Â thousands of activists/participants will gather near Sue Bierman Park in San Francisco before marching down Market Street to Civic Center Plaza, where 55 murals will be painted in and around the park to create, what organizers are calling, the biggest street mural ever.
These are our current exhibitions:

Eco Echo: Art and Environment LaboratoryÂ
Bay Area artists Anne Beck, Barbara Boissevain, Ginger Burrell, Judith Selby Lang, Richard Lang, Kent Manske, Michelle Wilson, and Nanette Wylde (from the environmental art collective Eco Echo) will create a dynamic, interactive art exhibit celebrating the relationship between art, science and the environment.
The Cubberly StudiosÂ ARTLab will be transformed into an art/science laboratory where the public can participate in art “experiments” allowing children and adults to investigate the interrelated spheres of art, ecology, environmental science and conservation. The spirit of this event is to celebrate the experimental nature of scientific inquiry and the art-making process. Each artist will create a lab specific to his or her own media and process, challenging the viewer to engage with the environment on a deep and creativeÂ level.
Kent and Nanette will orchestrate a CoLABorative Screen Printing Event at the opening reception. Come pull some prints and take home art. This event is great for kids.
