ART/ACT: Youth – 2018

June 7 – September 14, 2018

The David Brower Center is pleased to present Art/Act: youth, our annual exhibition showcasing work by over 80 current Berkeley High School students examining the intersection of environmentalism and art.

In the future, practices and decisions concerning the environment will be made by the youth of today. The chosen body of work for Art/Act: Youth gives insight into what young dynamic minds perceive about the current and future state of our planet. This exhibition underscores the Brower Center’s vision to nurture young environmental artists by fostering a community that supports and inspires their work, with the ultimate goal of empowering the next generation of change makers.
