“Restore Our Earth” exhibition continues through April

MSU Texas’ Harvey Art Gallery hosts projection art at Moffett Library and online display

The Juanita Harvey School of Visual Art at Midwestern State University presents the “Restore Our Earth” two-part immersive exhibition throughout April. The exhibition consists of an online exhibition and a projected installation in the windows of Moffett Library facing Taft Boulevard from 8-11 p.m. every Sunday-Thursday during April.

Global warming, overpopulation, extinction of species, and dwindling natural resources are all problems facing the Earth and humanity today. “Restore Our Earth” rejects the idea that the only options to save the planet are to adapt to the impacts of climate change and other environmental damage. A variety of organizations worldwide are now looking at natural processes and emerging green technologies to restore the world’s ecosystems and forests, conserve and rebuild soils, improve farming practices, restore wildlife populations, and rid the world’s oceans of plastics. These processes can help restore biodiversity, clean water and air, and rebalance ecological systems.

“Restore Our Earth” is a two-part juried exhibition that aims to present diverse views and concerns for the environment, and to engage viewers both aesthetically and emotionally as they explore this universally important topic. The exhibition consists of an online exhibition and a projected installation in the windows of Moffett Library facing Taft Boulevard.

The exhibition was juried by Elizabeth B. Hawley, an artist, conservationist and resident of Wichita Falls. Hawley wrote in her juror statement, “Over the years and in various countries, I’ve set eyes upon and studied exquisite works of art. Art draws me toward it, whether I am fond or not of the subject or the method. Again, and again, I’ve seen artists as relevant in their communities; they serve as healers, as creators of conduits to emotions people might not otherwise experience. In ‘Restore Our Earth,’ the message’s relevance is all-encompassing because we all share this planet.” The exhibition includes 38 artists and 45 artworks submitted by students, staff, and faculty from the campus of MSU Texas.

The online gallery can be viewed through MSUTexas.edu/finearts.
