Art Speaks for the Earth
Turf Wars calls for artists to create original artwork to challenge one’s self and the public to become better stewards of our environment. What would the earth say to what we are doing to her? Garbage, blue-green algae, plastics, oil spills, trash, emissions, climate change? What side are you on in humanity’s war on the environment? In what ways can you contribute to positive solutions for protecting our earth? What actions can you take for better stewardship of Mother Earth? How can you motivate others to act? Show it in a work of art.

Exterior Installation seen from First Street
Community groups, weavers, quilters, boaters & environmentalists want positive change for our water pollution. They all worked together to create 200 rings representing cyanobacteria in our river. Rings joined together stretch 60’ across the Sidney & Berne Davis Art Center. The installation by Rose Young and Marci Mills hangs from the rooftop railing to call attention to the problem of air and water pollution in SW Florida.
