Visit Del Ray Artisans Gallery’s Visions of Resilience: Art for Climate Justice exhibit from January 5–27, 2024 to explore the emotionally resonant power of art to inspire and raise awareness about climate change and its impact on marginalized communities. Art holds the power to portray what words so often miss. This exhibit conveys environmental issues through the universal languages of image and feeling with the goal of encouraging action towards a just, climate-friendly future.

This exhibit is being held in partnership with the Changing Planet Justice (CPJ) Foundation, which empowers youth to lead climate action in their communities. CPJ provides a platform for youth of all backgrounds to share climate justice-related art, writing, and photography with their peers internationally. During the exhibit, visitors may make donations to CPJ to help further youth-led climate action.

The Visions of Resilience: Art for Climate Justice exhibit runs January 5–27, 2024 at Del Ray Artisans gallery in the Colasanto Center, 2704 Mount Vernon Avenue, Alexandria, Virginia 22301. Gallery hours are Thursday 12-6pm, Friday 12-9pm, Saturday 12-6pm, and Sunday 12-6pm (closed on January 28).
