Today, our oceans are greatly endangered by human activity; with the threat of pollution and warming temperatures, the ocean levels are rising, coral reefs are dying, and invasive algae species are spreading worldwide. As this crisis escalates, climate change art bridges the scientific and visual, making hard data more accessible through an emotional response to art.
Making Waves presents the work of three women artists, Resa Blatman, Joan Hall, and Karen Lee Sobol, who each use their art to address humankind’s relationship to the ocean. Through different media, including painting, printmaking, and mixed media installation, the artists advocate for greater awareness of the climate crisis.
