Earth Action Initiative and MUSA present a series of Art Shows centered around the idea that art helps comprehend climate change and inspire action to combat it.
For the month of April, four small business venues around Berkeley will be housing art by local artists focused on the theme Wildlife. Stop by and visit the spaces in support of local businesses, artists and climate action!
Art is up for the month April (April 1st to April 30th).

This year's art show centers on the theme "Wildlife." We seek to celebrate a positive aspect of the pandemic, as seen in the return of wildlife to urban areas and the recovery of many burdened ecosystems, as humans sheltered in place.
The focus of Earth Action Initiative is direct action. We conceived the art show as an opportunity to raise funds for mini action grants, which are awarded in our local community through a proposal process led by the EAI Organizing Committee.
