Sponsored by

This event is over.

Event Details:

A Cool Million is a public arts initiative for climate awareness led by artists and institutions to expand environmental justice programming and support the conservation of one million acres of land central to the California hydrological system. The Cantor is participating in the initiative by collaborating with artist Petra Cortright to create a banner for the museum’s exterior, which features a new digital painting of an invented landscape evoking the rugged scenery and wildfires of California.

This initiative is organized by Haley Melin and Micki Meng and is a collaboration between Art into Acres, Art+Climate Action, and California museums.

The Cantor Arts Center presentation is organized by Maggie Dethloff, assistant curator of photography and new media.
