Art has long provided a call to action. From the anti-war songs of the 1960s such as “Bring ‘Em Home,” to social injustice books such as “Uncle Tom’s Cabin,” or “The Jungle,” to the anti-nazi editorial cartoons of the 1930s and 40s, and even government propaganda films such as “The Battleship Potemkin,” people have always used art to evoke emotion and influence society. The environment in particular has inspired artists and their works.

The University of New Mexico Wind Symphony is hosting a collaborative and interdisciplinary program to bring awareness to climate change and demonstrate how art can be an effective tool for such education.  Together with UNM’s Land Arts of the American West, the Departments of Earth and Planetary Sciences, Biology, Geography, and Sustainability, the Wind Symphony presents a concert entitled “This Beautiful Earth,” and will feature arts and science displays and presentations on human impact on the environment.

Tickets to This Beautiful Earth available HERE.
