Engaging with members of our community to create art forwarding climate action

Climate Banner

Students in the 2022 Write Climate: Art & Engagement class walked the postcard climate banner from Clark Hall to Charlottesville City Hall in early May. We also visited the Albemarle Board of Supervisors during their meeting in early May. We asked these local leaders to use their influence and position to enact carbon-reduction policies and initiatives. The banner is currently on display at the Albemarle City Office Building.

UVA community members shared how climate change makes them feel and a specific area of concern on some 600 postcards. Students sewed the cards together to create the image of a Charlottesville landscape with an ominous sky.
