what is ecoartspace?
ecoartspace has served as a platform for artists addressing environmental issues since 1999. Patricia Watts and Amy Lipton have curated over 60 art and ecology exhibitions combined, and have organized, as well as participated in, over 100 ecoart programs and events. Starting 2020, Watts decided to transition to a membership-based organization. Students, artists, advocates, professionals, galleries and institutions are invited to join who are concerned about the natural world. Together, we as a community can both imagine and make real, a healthy livable future for all.

What can moss teach us about mutual aid, reparation, land rights and coastal resilience?
Urban Moss has been included in my dance + ecosocial art fieldwork and studio practice since last year’s Climate Strike, when moss invited themselves to march with EPA, an artist collective I co-founded in 2017. As the Pandemic shutdown hit NYC, moss and I facilitated the virtual “Moss in Pandemic Times Group Gathering.” Together with Dot Armstrong, Nora Almeida, Ellie Irons, Simone Johnson and their neighborhood mosses we created Moss Summer Camp.
You can join in the fieldwork here: multispecies.care
Moss hands for climate justice!
The Great Pause ZOOM dialogues
On March 26 we met with almost 50 members to discuss some of the positive and negative events arising, in artists studio practice and in the environment, due to the COVID-19 Pandemic. We met again on April 9, and May 20 with special guest author and activist Ashley Dawson, and June 12 for a dialogue on TREES.
NEW: TREE TALK dialogues will be held on the last Thursday of every month at 11am MDT. Co-sponsored by the Joshua Tree Center for Photographic Arts. Moderated by Sant Khalsa.
