This Earth Day, we invite the region’s youngest artists (up to age 12) to explore the variety of creatures that make up the Web of Life on our planet. Artwork can explore local or foreign ecosystems, and can focus on individual plants or animals and their place in the great web of life, or on entire connected systems.
Open call gallery exhibition for children up to age 12.
