ECOART TREASURE COAST Launch, April 2-5, 2009

to address environmental problems by bringing art, science and
community engagement together.

The South Florida Environmental Art Project, Inc is teaming with The Arts Council of MartinCounty to:
--bring artists to our region to present their ecoart work and showcase our Florida ecoartists; --exhibit examples of environmental performance art; --show films and videos about water problems and the artists working on these critical issues.

Who are the ECOART TREASURE COAST launch activities for?
Everyone! But especially...
· Artists who want to explore Ecoart as a new creative direction · Environmental advocates who are promoting sustainability across Florida · Arts groups · Green builders, architects and landscape architects · Scientists and engineers working to better air, water and soil quality · Public officials responsible for preserving and improving the environment
Is ECOART TREASURE COAST only about talks, exhibitions and films?
No, ECOART TREASURE COAST
is about much, much more. The launch activities April 2-5, 2009 are
only the preliminaries. Later in 2009 there will be a special workshop
for MartinCounty resident professional artists who wish to consider
ecoart as a new creative direction. From this group of artists who
attend this workshop a smaller group of ecoart apprentices will be
chosen to work over a year's period with expert ecoartist Betsy Damon (www.keepersofthewaters.org)
to conceptualize, organize and create an ecoart project in MartinCounty, learning in the process all the skills
needed to engage an
ecoart practice. An application form will be available on both the
SFEAP, Inc. and Arts Council, Inc. sites soon, and will be available at
all ECOART TREASURE COAST events.
I will be coming from a distance. Where can I stay overnight?
