Smaller Footprints: Artists Examine Global Warming
January 28, 2016 - March 2016
On Saturday, January 30, MOAH:CEDAR’s exhibition, Smaller Footprints, opened as part of the Lancaster Museum of Art & History’s (MOAH) award-winning Green MOAH Initiative. This exciting exhibition, which featured international artwork that addressed the subject of climate change, marked a partnership between the Museum and the Women Eco Artists Dialog (WEAD), a group of arts professionals working with environmental and social justice issues.
Smaller Footprints showcases work that reflects the life-altering effects of climate change and its impact on water, food, human health, social justice, and species loss. The exhibit was curated by Linda Weintraub, WEAD member and prominent American eco-art writer/educator; WEAD cofounder/chair Susan Leibovitz Steinman; and MOAH/Cedar administrator/curator Robert Benitez. Smaller Footprints is a celebration of the 20th anniversary of WEAD’s distinguished history. Of the inspiration behind the exhibition, Weintraub states, “Impending climate calamity impinges upon all humans and all forms of life. Smaller Footprints promises to leave larger imprints upon the sensibilities of all viewers.”
