Members of Pacific Rim Sculptors were invited to submit works in any media focusing on the serious social or environmental issues currently challenging our country and planet.
The news is filled with humanitarian crises. Scientists tell us earth's resources are being mismanaged: pollutants damage our atmosphere to the point of extreme climate change, fires, crop failures; insecticides and industrial wastes poison our land and waterways; and discarded plastic chokes our oceans and kills already over-fished marine life. Scarce resources lead to strife. Borders close to desperate, asylum-seeking refugees and children are torn from their parents. In these times of unprecedented and rapid change, artists' voices need to be heard more than ever.
