ECOART TREASURE COAST Launch, April 2-5, 2009

The launch of the two-year Ecoart Treasure Coast project brings to Florida for the first time an in depth look at the range of ecoart practice by dedicated artists worldwide who are seeking to address environmental problems by bringing art, science and community engagement together.

Environmental Art Project, Inc is teaming with The Arts Council of Martin County to:

--bring artists to our region to present  their ecoart work and showcase our Florida ecoartists;

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 Martin County 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 ( to conceptualize, organize and create an ecoart project in Martin County, 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?

Rooms have been blocked at the Stuart Courtyard Marriott at a special rate for those attending the symposium. Make your own arrangements at 1-772-781-3344.
