Walking the Sustainable Talk

Artists’ Footprints is an eco-friendly exhibition of artists and architects from across the Americas -- everywhere from Boulder to Quebec to Ecuador – whose works share the themes of sustainability and innovation. Using materials such as plants, compost, moss, food, recycled wood, ceramic and trash, the artists have created compelling pieces that reflect a more responsible approach to protecting the planet. “It’s really related to the carbon footprint,” says curator Viviane Le Courtois. “The purpose of the exhibit is to show different ways of working and living. Most of the works are installations that are created onsite to avoid shipping costs.”

Held in conjunction with the Biennial of the Americas and pushing that event’s sustainability theme, Artists’ Footprints at RedLine Denver, 2350 Arapahoe Street, features works ranging from rainwater collected in a series of filter systems made from recycled material to photographs of families from around the Western Hemisphere with one week's worth of food displayed in front of them.

Artists’ Footprints continues through August 11. Admission is free; for more information call 303-296-4448 or go to www.redlineart.org.
