A number of Justseeds artists are included in a fabulous exhibition entitled We Honor: The Art of Activism in Albuquerque, NM (more info HERE). Organized by Nani Chacon, the show focuses on environmental justice and land struggles from the perspective of native peoples. From the show statement:
Our mission is to create awareness and support for Native
environmental issues and to showcase the amazing conscious art from across the country. Art has power. We believe that art plays an important role in activism. Art has the ability to wake people up. Through it we can evoke emotion, tell stories, inspire and motivate,and when channeled as a vehicle for issues of conscience it can become a catalyst for meaningful change. Fracking, uranium, coal, water mining and their powerplants, are all direct threats to our water, air, land, health. These extractive industries thrive on indigenous land we must create a space to speak out the protection of mother earth.
