A group of twenty women artists come together from different parts of the world to inspire and raise awareness of the importance of planting native plants for biodiversity. The artists’ works are inspired by the ecosystems of their homeland or by the places they chose to live. This exciting collective effort focuses on social, mental and environmental ecology which connects human health to environmental and planetary health. This increases emotional resilience and adaptation to a healthier Earth which links human and species’ rights. The aim of the artists is to create empathy and understanding for biodiversity fatigue through intercultural engagement and for the impact of society on diminishing pollinators. From a private garden in Brandenburg, Germany, the Álamos de la Vega in Granada Spain, the mangroves of Puerto Rico, the Forest Park, Queens in New York to inspiring native gardens in Massachusetts, this collection of works presents a variety of mediums that includes video, installation, painting, photography, drawing and sculpture. The event is free to the public and in support of two Boston nonprofit organizations: Haley House and SPOKE Art.
