Moms Clean Air Force is helping artist and climate activist Monica Jahan Bose and multimedia artist and video journalist Robin Bell create WARMING WATERS, a new temporary public art project that will drape the C&O Canal wall in Georgetown behind Dean and Deluca with massive colorful cotton fabric saris from Bangladesh. The saris will be covered with printmaking and writing about climate change by residents of Washington and Katakhali Village, Bangladesh, and video projections will be displayed on the saris and trees in the evenings. The temporary installation will be for four consecutive days around Earth Day 2020, from April 22-25.
Participants in the sari workshops will learn woodblock printing, create artwork that will be displayed, and discuss and learn about the effects of climate change.
