Creative Climate Awards (New York, NY) – Call For Artists

[Side Arts Certified Sponsored Listing] The Human Impacts Institute announces an open call for the 2023 Creative Climate Awards, with the theme of Inspiring a Climate Renaissance.

The Human Impacts Institute’s Creative Climate Awards (CCA) are an annual series of events that showcase artists creating climate-inspired, public works. In an effort to inspire us to think more critically about our actions and their impacts, the Creative Climate Awards program uses the arts and creativity to share knowledge, broaden the climate conversation, educate, and incite action. The Creative Climate Awards are a month-long festival of virtual conversations, screenings, artist talks, and a citywide exhibit in New York City.

About the Human Impacts Institute

Human Impacts Institute is an association which supports arts and culture to inspire action for a just and thriving world. Through exhibitions, salons, training, education, storytelling, and conversations, their missions are to highlight new voices of leadership, connect you to solutions in engaging ways, and welcome you to a diverse, creative community that is addressing the root causes of the climate crisis. The Institute works in city streets, schools, galleries, and museums, bringing people together to promote equitable solutions in positive and creative ways.

The first edition of the Creative Climate Awards was in 2012, and every year since, Human Impacts Institute has been organizing an open call to find and value innovative artists and new ways to experiment in inspiring positive human impacts. We are always looking for new partnerships to create a network of artists coming from different countries.

About Las Laguna Art Gallery

Las Laguna Art Gallery is a contemporary and fine art gallery that features art from a diverse group of artists, representing a variety of mediums. They are dedicated to the exploration and engagement of contemporary and fine art visual culture through unique collaborations between artists, students, and the community. They make it a point to curate artwork that is interesting and engaging to the art collector, lover, and novice. Unlike most art galleries located in Laguna Beach, the gallery accepts work from artists outside of Laguna Beach. Since 2013, Las Laguna Gallery has held open calls for art, calls for entry, and calls for art opportunities for artists to promote and sell their art in a gallery. Each month they have a themed exhibition and works are promoted in the gallery, online, and to an extensive client list.

Quickly becoming one of the premier contemporary and fine art galleries in Laguna Beach, California; Las Laguna Gallery is dedicated to the exploration and engagement of contemporary and fine art visual culture – regionally, nationally, and internationally; through unique collaborations between artists, students, and the community.

Las Laguna Gallery is located on Pacific Coast Highway in Laguna Village. Laguna Village is an artist alcove on the cliff overlooking the Pacific Ocean. This location is a must stop location with artist galleries and jewelry shops. The location features a restaurant, bar, and there is live music in the fire-side theater Tuesday through Saturday. The gallery is one of only three locations in Laguna Beach that offers an unobstructed view of the Pacific Ocean. It is a desired destination for art, live music, and food.

With more than 100 art galleries and artist studios to explore, you’ll come to understand why Laguna Beach is a beloved “art colony.” In fact, the area was discovered by artists. In the late 1800s, visitors were making an annual pilgrimage through the canyons to camp at Laguna Beach each summer. By 1903, painters like Norman St Clair were visiting from San Francisco, attracted to the landscape and light only found on the coast of Laguna. Like tourists of any era, St Clair returned home with glowing reports and landscape paintings that led his artist friends to follow him south. It wasn’t long before plein air (painting outdoors) artists like William Wendt and Frank Cuprien moved to Laguna Beach.

Laguna Beach is now a world class art destination with multiple art events held throughout the year.
