Insight: Art for Climate Action

La Joya Dulce (47050 CO Rd 129, Steamboat Springs, CO)
The Yampa Valley Sustainability Council (YVSC)
is excited to present the first annual fundraiser event, Insight: Art for Climate Action. The YVSC believes that art is a powerful way to educate around climate science and communicate sustainability efforts to a wider community. Art enables them to combine intricate scientific topics with beauty and emotion, allowing viewers to connect with their own humanness. At YVSC, they value art as an important means of communicating science and inspiring action, and this fundraising event has been built with those intentions in mind.
Artists have been invited to create pieces based on prompts that engage three key climate action areas: Resilient Land & Water, Waste Diversion, and Energy & Transportation. These pieces will be auctioned off during a grand evening complete with delicious appetizers, beverages, and live music at the beautiful La Joya Dulce Ranch.
25% of the proceeds from the sale of each artwork will be allocated directly to the participating artists who will be in attendance to discuss their works, providing them with vital support and recognition for their creative contributions.
