Green Art: Sharing Sustainable Approaches and Practices
February 19 – May 21, 2022
Be greenspired at Langley Centennial Museum. Experience a gallery of works produced by people from across our region, and created while reducing, reusing, and repurposing household and workplace items. Each piece on display was developed with at least 75% green or repurposed materials.
“We had an amazing response from sustainably-minded community members,” said Lindsay Foreman, Curator of Indigenous Arts and Culture and exhibition lead. “126 unique works from contributors living across the lands known today as BC were reviewed by the adjudication committee.”
The pieces selected for the Green Art exhibit have been arranged by their primary material to raise awareness about the different types of consumer waste. This approach also demonstrates how different people are reusing and repurposing similar materials to create sustainable art.
Visit the exhibit to be greenspired, and find creative ways to reuse, and reduce waste every day.
This project is funded by the BC Arts Council.
Green Art Demonstrations and Discussion
Several of our exhibiting artists will be onsite this spring to share their sustainable approaches. Participate in these demonstrations with your museum admission. Get details, dates, and times.
