Angela Gonzalez will be creating a greener tomorrow in the upcoming art exhibition, Save/[eARTh]. This will be the last Gallery exhibit of the semester. The exhibit will be featured in The University Union’s Gallery from April 22nd through May 16th during general hours. The Gallery is open Monday-Fridays from 10:30am-3:30pm and Wednesday-Thursdays from 5-8pm during the semester.
Gonzalez is originally from Colombia, South America. She decided to become an artist after attending college and majoring in design. She believes that art allows her to communicate with the barriers of culture, age or language. Her art has been featured at many venues, including the New York Hall of Science Museum, The Coral Springs Museum of Art, and the SMUD Gallery. In hopes of leading a greener tomorrow, her objective in this exhibit is to engage audiences in a conversation about ecological and social responsibilities. For the exhibit, she will be displaying 16 art pieces related to climate change and its impact on earth by using recycled technology materials, including computer chips, hard drives and more.
“I am deeply concerned about our planet and I want to use my art to create awareness about the issues earth is facing today,” said Gonzalez. “I hope the public is inspired by my work and join me in taking steps to SAVE/[eARTh].”
The reception for Save/[eARTh] will be held on Thursday, April 25th, 2019. The event takes place from 6-8 pm in the Gallery, located on the 2nd floor of the University Union. The exhibit, along with its reception, is open to the general public. Attendants are welcome to meet the artist and enjoy appetizers provided at the event.
