The David Brower Center, Berkeley

The David Brower Center is a "home for the environmental movement" with office suites, rental spaces, and a ground floor art gallery.  While we were visiting and sketching, a seminar was taking place  on the second floor to train legal teams in leadership skills.  The exhibit on the first floor focussed on the Canary Project,  whose research centered projects aim to increase public awareness and motivate action on environmental issues.  The drawing below is of several of their Green Parrot posters on display, encouraging all citizens to build a sustainable economy.





The Canary Project was created in 2006 by artist duo Sayler and Morris, whose research-intensive projects are framed to broaden public awareness and inspire action surrounding environmental issues - See more at: http://browercenter.org/exhibit/artact2016/#.dpuf
