GLOBAL WARMING MURAL UNVEILED BY HUONG
Activist Artist Brings Color and Attention to Climate Change
MIAMI – With a backdrop of an unprecedented hurricane season and a rapid
politicization of science, Miami artist Huong is preparing for the
unveiling a new mural focused on the startling reality of climate change
at Miami Art Palace this Winter Season, Saturday December 1, 2017.
In the destructive aftermath of
Hurricane Irma, Huong – like many who have experienced the growing
intensity of storms – has been shocked by the Trump administration's
denial of the manmade impact on global weather patterns and our
responsibility to respond.
"As Irma struck over the surrounding of my house, knocked down 100 years
old giant banyan tree, I was frozen with fear, witnessing the power and
anger of Mother Earth," she said. "I am more committed than ever to
share the facts about global warming through my work."
Now on last minute assembly and installation at her studio – Miami Art
Palace in South Miami, the Global Warming mural is 8 foot tall and 100
feet long is a vast array of 500 original painting on wood panels filled
with exotic colors and poignant quotes from scientists, activists and
public that bring attention to the environmental destruction due to the
president's refusal to acknowledge the reality of climate change.
The fact that three hurricanes impacted states with nuclear reactors –
as the administration is offering $100 billion in bailouts for outdated
nuclear and coal companies – makes this exhibit as timely as ever.
President Trump also announced plans to pull the United States out of
the Paris Agreement on climate change earlier this year, despite pleas
from the scientific community to remain committed to fighting the
increase in carbon emissions, which contributes to climate change.
Environmentalists including Huong have remained dedicated to fighting
Of course, this is not the first environmentally themed mural from the
artist, who has recently been featured on PBS. In 2010, she unveiled a
mural entitled "Bleeding in the Gulf" to highlight through art the
outrage felt by citizens over the BP oil spill. Both works of art bring
voice to the wildlife and ecosystems plagued by pollution and
unnecessary climatological impacts.
The artist's vision is to create a platform for discussion on
controversial topics to engage the public through art. Far more than a
simply an Exhibition of Art, The Global warming Mural is highly
interactive and participatory as it evokes civic engagement and calls
forth from the viewers a respose through reflection , dialogue and civic
The Mural is both deeply spiritual and enviromentaly reflective as it
calls forth citizen and community response, But most of all, it
resonates a challenge and change attitude from Human responsibility
toward the critical environmental destruction to the mother earth.
