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 was planned for four consecutive days around Earth Day 2020 but has been postponed until the summer because of the Covid-19 pandemic.
The April 7 sari workshop will be held via Zoom and will focus on climate poetry and words that Monica will transfer onto a sari. RSVP at the link below for the Zoom meeting details.
