Insight: Art for Climate Action

Insight is an art auction fundraiser hosted by YVSC that celebrates the power of art in communicating the science and meaning of climate action in the Yampa Valley.

Yampa Valley Sustainability Council (YVSC) is excited to bring back its annual fundraiser, "Insight: Art for Climate Action," set to take place on Saturday, June 29, 2024, at the beautiful Larson Barn in Steamboat Springs. This extraordinary event aims to raise awareness and support for climate action through the power of art.

YVSC is excited to present our first annual fundraiser event, Insight: Art for Climate Action. We believe that art is a powerful way to educate around climate science and communicate sustainability efforts to a wider community. Art enables us to combine intricate scientific topics with beauty and emotion, allowing us to connect with our own hummanness. We at YVSC 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. Guests can expect both a silent auction and a live auction format with much more than just art to be auctioned off.

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.
