Insight: Art for Climate Action
Insight is an art auction fundraiser hosted by YVSC that celebrates the power of art in communicating the science and meaning of climate action in the Yampa Valley.
YVSC is excited to present our first annual fundraiser event, Insight: Art for Climate Action. We believe that art is a powerful way to educate around climate science and communicate sustainability efforts to a wider community. Art enables us to combine intricate scientific topics with beauty and emotion, allowing us to connect with our own hummanness. We at YVSC value art as an important means of communicating science and inspiring action, and this fundraising event has been built with those intentions in mind.
Artists have been invited to create pieces based on prompts that engage three key climate action areas: Resilient Land & Water, Waste Diversion, and Energy & Transportation. These pieces will be auctioned off during a grand evening complete with delicious appetizers, beverages, and live music at the beautiful La Joya Dulce Ranch.
Date: Sunday, July 9
Time: 5-8 p.m.
