Climate Science Alliance Affiliated Artist, Ashley Mazanec, recently celebrated the first successful quarter of her new project, EcoArts Foundation. The EcoArts Foundation was created by like-minded individuals coming together to lead social change with rich artistic media, reaching beyond data and disciplinary boundaries. With the mission to inspire ecological regeneration via the arts, EcoArts celebrates artists that are setting a high bar with socially-responsible content that promts new audiences like policymakers, consumers, scientists, and the general public to make lifestyle choices that sustain and benefit the environment.
EcoArts has been busy in their first quarter, bringing eco-art to the community in a variety of ways. They hosted a music and art dining experience that featured a farm-to-table menu, launched a new podcast series Let's Talk About the Weather, and brought their artwork to community events.
Through Ashley Mazanec's involvement with the Climate Science Alliance, she connected with another CSA Affiliated Artist, Kira Corser, which led their collaboration in the EcoArts Foundation. On June 24th, EcoArts showcased Kira Corser's eco-artwork the annual Encinitas BroAm, allowing the community to learn about environmental issues through art. We love to see our CSA Affiliated Artists teaming up to create amazing new projects and can't wait to see what else EcoArts will bring to the community in the future!
EcoArts also has an exciting event coming up on September 9th: The Eco Arts Renaissance A Farm-to-Table Affair. To accompany the delicious, locally-sourced vegetarian cuisine, the renaissance will entertain guests with music, art, and the opportunity to participate in climate change skits. Register here.
