When & Where
Amplify Action 2012
“Amplify Action: Sustainability through the Arts”, a juried exhibition of works presented by the Skylight Gallery, a department of BSRC’s Center for Arts and Culture, created both by local artists and artists abroad that promote a dialogue about sustainable communities. The exhibition includes paintings, photography, sculptures, mixed media, installations and innovative approaches to re-purpose waste into useful art materials and activism toward sustainable practices in the Bedford Stuyvesant community. This exhibit is made possible by the generous support of the Rockefeller Foundation’s Cultural Innovation Fund.
This exhibition demonstrates how arts, culture, and media are powerful catalysts for social change, and aims to engage neighborhoods in a dialogue about sustainable living, making healthy consumer choices, and taking environmental action. Works in the exhibit will directly and indirectly examine the different components of sustainability, such as, but not limited to: ecology, economy, equity, environmental consciousness, resource conservation and efficiency, agriculture, architecture, infrastructure, environmental justice, and health.
