Main Library Exhibits Global Warming Mural in May 2018

 

Florida artist Huong is exhibiting the Global Warming Mural composed of 400 original paintings at the Main Library, gallery six, 100 S. Andrews Avenue, Fort Lauderdale in May 2018. The mixed medium mural on wood is 80 feet long by 8 feet tall. The artist hopes this mural will create a platform for discussion of climate change.

 

“The oil paintings immediately appear to be beautiful and colorful images of nature, but on closer inspection reveal a serious message about the threats that will destroy the environment,” said Huong.

 

Huong will greet visitors at the opening reception for the exhibit on Saturday, May 5, 2018, 1 to 4 pm.Broward County Natural Resource Specialist Monica Ospina will speak at 1:30 pm on the topic of “Climate Change Basics.” Dr. Henry Briceno will speak at 3 p.m. about global warming issues.
