MMAM artists included in climate art on-line exhibition

Two of Minnesota Marine Art Museum’s current exhibits are part of climate art curated on- line exhibit, Craft Speaks: Voices for a Sustainable Future.  “Honoring the Future” is an organization that focuses on “engaging and empowering the public on climate change”  through showcasing artists whose work “offers fresh hope and new insights to a world in need of solutions to environmental challenges.” Courtney Mattison creates ceramic sculpture with an intention to inform the viewer of the impact of human activity on our ocean. Liz Sexton creates paper mache masks of fish, bird, and mammals, and also displays photographs of people wearing the masks to make a point about how humans are “displacing animals from their natural habitat, forcing them to live in our human world.” Both exhibits run through September 3 at the Minnesota Marine Art Museum.
