Using Beauty to Look at Hard Environmental Issues
How do we respond to a situation as troubling as climate change, and what will inspire us to change our behavior?
Artist Linda Gass makes artwork using beauty encourage people to look at hard environmental issues we face, working in textiles, glass, installations, and public art. In her work she addresses the relationship between humans and water and the land that sustains us.
Linda Gass has won the prestigous Fleishacker Eureka Fellowship Award, and her work has been exhibited nationally and internationally, including the Museum of Crafts and Design, the Oakland Museum, the Belleview Art Museum, and the US Embassy in Moscow.
When she isn’t working on her art or championing environmental causes, she is back packing, camping, and hiking in the areas of the West that inspire her work.
