We’ve all heard the undeniably depressing forecast for our beloved planet. Some say we have 10 years until the effects of climate change become irreversible. Some say we’re already too late.
No matter the timeline, local painter and UCCS instructor Marina Eckler recognizes that we should probably wish Earth “as we know it” goodbye. This going-away party includes all the trappings: cake, refreshments and mingling. Some may even stand to say a few words in memory of humanity.
While you wish goodbye to the Earth, check out GOCA’s current exhibit, the aptly titled Time. As part of UCCS’ biennial Pollinate festival, Time includes work by UCCS visual art faculty members, speaking to the theme through various mediums.
