RISE Outdoor Exhibition
RISE Outdoor is a group exhibition showcasing artists whose work draws attention to the persistent changes in nature, and humanity’s inevitable connection to it. Both symbolically or literally, and through varying mediums, the included artists are reflecting on the effects of climate change and its tangible results such as rising tides, polluted waterways, coastal flooding, and displaced local communities. Each artist’s statement and biography is included and encouraged to be reviewed to understand the differences in representation of this important topic.
This unique exhibition will exist outdoors throughout the Delray Beach downtown area consisting of 10 freestanding prints by six artists. The goal is to bring art to safe spaces outdoors during COVID-19 restrictions, to activate new areas in the Delray Beach downtown/Delray Beach CRA District, and to ultimately speaking on climate change and its personal and worldwide effects through the visual art. Art is a gateway for reaching new audiences when discussing environmental issues like Climate Change.
RISE Climate & Art Weekend: Each October, in conjunction with the seasonal King Tides, The City of Delray Beach and the Office of Sustainability organizes a climate education outreach event to raise awareness about the impacts of climate changes and the need to proactively adapt. The weekend invites organizations from around the city to be involved. Programs to be included are artist talks, art exhibitions, virtual panels, environmental activities, and others. As a coastal city within a larger coastal area, Delray Beach hopes to share the realities of the climate crisis, rising tides, and ultimately how it can directly affect us and the local neighborhoods in the future.
Arts Warehouse is pleased to bring this outdoor exhibition to life with the generous support from the Delray Beach CRA, the Delray Beach Office of Sustainability, and Erin Deady P.A.
