About the Exhibit
Under the reality of climate change, renewable energy offers solutions for the future. In this exhibit, artists use sculpture to explore the need for better environmental responsibility, re-imagining solar energy as an art form. Some artists adopted sunlight as the medium, subject matter, or energy source. Others explored how light, sun, and energy intersect, capturing the importance of sustainability: art made with sunlight—the energy source for life on Earth.
