SILVER SPRING, MD — Three D.C. area artists will create temporary public artwork that raises awareness about climate change and encourages green behavior in Montgomery County.
The art installation — made possible through the county’s Sustainable Environmental Public Art Project Initiative — will showcase the works of Jackie Hoysted, Kirsty Little, and Joanne Miller. Their pieces, which will be displayed from May to June 2020, aims to inspire residents to lead more eco-friendly lives and highlight the county’s environmental objectives, according to the Arts and Humanities Council of Montgomery County (AHCMC).
“Issues surrounding today’s environmental concerns are top-of-mind nowadays,” said Suzan Jenkins, CEO of the AHCMC. “No matter which side of the aisle they may be on, people are discussing the current climate crisis. The arts are an incredible vehicle to bring attention to these challenges while also providing messages of hope and inspiring change.”
