E Street Artists
Climate Change Through a Personal Lens
The exhibition opened on December 3, 2020, and will be on display in our Ballroom Gallery until February 23, 2021.
The public dialogue on climate change is broken, divisive and ill-informed. Art offers a different language to consider climate change, one that is accessible and welcoming. Art does not judge the viewer. It speaks to each of us on a personal level. When we view art on an issue as complex as climate change, we consider it in the context of our own lives. We are not told what to think, but we are invited to reconsider our assumptions and to face hard truths, to contemplate our loss. Art challenges us to action.
It is a powerful force for social change.
Artists: Leslie Harris, Feriel Bensalem, Harriet Weiner, Lois Kampinsky, Paul G. Cunningham, Terry Birkel, Noreene Janus, Arleen Cheston, Suzanne Stack, Kaitlin Forster, Aurie Hall, Nimi Trehan, Jasmin Smith, Sabiha Iqbal, Cheryl Ann Bearss, Heather Urban, and Gabriela Hernandez.
The E Street Artists get their name from the location of the Corcoran School of Art and Design at George Washington University where the artists met and worked under the guidance of Mira Hecht.
