Global Warming Is Real. Something that has been on the top of our minds for quite some time. As scientific reports and photos document the changes in our earth’s atmosphere, we become sensitized to how global warming impacts us now and in the future. As global organizations such as and many others document the scientific facts, we begin to assimilate and personalize the information. Your creative interpretation of your thoughts and feelings through art will be the heart of this exhibition. Go to and learn about the world’s largest grass roots environmental organization trying to save our planet. It may help articulate your thoughts with your art. There are no parameters to your expression, only that your artwork be current.

Juror Garrett Smith will make his selections based on interpretation of the Global Warming is Real theme as well as the quality of the submitted artwork.
