What is your artwork about?“Our panel depicts how we think the Earth is feeling. With too much pollution and the temperature of our environment rising, the earth is getting sick. If we don’t do a better job of taking care of our home, we are afraid it won’t be there for our future generations.The thermometer in the earth’s mouth indicates that she is not feeling well. The flames and smoke represent the elevated temperatures in our atmosphere.When people view our completed panel, we hope it inspires them to treat our planet with more respect and dignity.”
What other projects could the IFC do? Something that revolves around the former World Trade Center site, with a “peace” theme.
