VOICES ALONG THE PIPELINES
Voices along the Pipelines: Citizen Art
August 8 - September 8, 2019
Media Arts Council
609-B W. State Street Media, PA 19063
An exhibit documenting the human impacts of pipeline infrastructure through Art.
This exhibit will responsibly serve as a vehicle for civil discourse, awareness, and creative expression to both artists, residents, and community groups in response to the potential risks of new fossil fuel infrastructure. According to musician Yo-Yo Ma, such citizen based works “transcend technique in order to seek out the truths in our world in a way that gives meaning and sustenance to individuals and communities.” This exhibit’s range of talent serves to deepen the conversation and document growing momentum in a greater movement connecting various communities experiencing similar challenges.
The exhibit will include Chris Baker Evens’ documentary photographs, filmmaker Hugh Brownstone, illustrators Meg Lemieur and Bri Barton of Water Ways, prints from Nicolas Lampert, Shepard Fairey, and Bec Young, Elizabeth Meyers ceramic work with Standing Rock, and several community groups including the local Momma Bears Brigade, Lancaster Against Pipelines, Philly Thrive from South Philly, the “1000 Flags/1000 Waters” flag project, and documentation from “The Defenders” sculpture project from Virginia. The exhibit will open August 10th from 4pm - 7pm, with an opening water ceremony honoring the Leni Lenape tribe, and an evening performance by artist and vocalist Eleanor Goldfield after the reception.
