The David Brower Center is pleased to present Art/Act: Youth – Wild Places, our annual exhibition showcasing work by Bay Area high school students examining the intersection of environmentalism and art. The chosen body of work explores the importance of connecting to wilderness in order to more fully appreciate, understand, and protect our natural world. This exhibition underscores the Brower Center’s vision to nurture young environmental artists by fostering a community that supports and inspires their work, with the ultimate goal of empowering the next generation of changemakers.

Join us on February 21st for the free opening reception, featuring performances by Youth Speaks. Student artists, friends, and family are warmly encouraged to attend and join the celebration!

Participating schools are Richmond, Berkeley, and Skyline High Schools.

Art/Act: Youth is made possible through the generosity of the Berkeley Civic Arts Program & Civic Arts Commission, Dharma Merchant Services, Swanky Catering & Events, and the Nancy P. and Richard K. Robbins Foundation.
