As more and bigger natural catastrophes visit our planet, ecology based arts are gaining ever greater importance. Ecological art respects the ecosystems of living species and their environments from an ethical, social, contextual, economic and aesthetic perspective while seeking to remedy or preserve life. It is socially engaged and socially interactive, and at times even intervention-based art.
The artists of this exhibition are diverse in their use of media and approach. They include Milena Popov who utilizes natural materials such as tea with which to make her calligraphic horizontal scrolls entitled Landscape Painted with Tea: Conversation with Nature, 2016. Barbara Roux’s At War With Plants, wall sculpture installation continues her work with endangered native trees covering the bark of her branches in camouflage materials. Mary Hrbacek’s anthropomorphic trees humanize nature in an effort to gain sympathy for them.

On September 11, 2001, a series of four coordinated terrorist attacks were carried out by the Islamic terrorist group Al-Queda, with New York City feeling the brunt of this horrific tragedy. The events of 9/11 represent the largest attack and subsequent rescue and recovery operation ever on U.S. soil. In just a few short hours, both of the monstrous, 110 story-tall World Trade Center Towers, were devastated by two separate hijacked commercial airliners that were flown into them. The entire world watched in awe as nearly 3,000 people lost their lives as the buildings crumbled.
