Created in celebration of Earth Day, proceeds benefit Environmental Defense Fund. Earth Prayer is Pace Prints’ first exclusive Online Release and will be available on Earth Day, April 22, 2020, at 11:00 am EDT.
Powerlessness is a common feeling in the face of climate change. Upon learning this year is the 50th anniversary of Earth Day, and that humans have struggled for a half-century to make meaningful change, I felt defeated. I wanted to make a work that embodied this grief, but also expressed the will to change.
We have the choice to shift our intentions toward addressing this dire threat. The current pandemic is a harrowing reminder of just how connected we are. There is no avoiding a crisis that affects the entire planet. This edition is called Earth Prayer. If you purchase a print, you may choose how committed you are to this cause. I hope you choose to answer this call to action like your house is on fire, because it is.
