Love Letters to Earth II

Gallery Exhibition

Nature is in dangerous decline due to human activities and as global development has intensified and extraction of people and places continues, it can cause dread, anxiety, and global despair.  Processing through love and actionable gestures can form connections to the greater web of life by extending our love of earth outward. Join artist Torey Erin in a social practice project by sharing experiences of connection to nature and the climate grief we face today. Participants will write a love letter, devotion, or gratitude message to the earth on seed paper and plant it to tend to it over time.

This event is held in conjunction with the exhibition From the Earth.

Max of 25 participants will be allotted for this event—reserve your spot soon!
