Remember Earth? features works by 54 Gulf South artists that explore the complexities of living in an environment already experiencing the ravages of an out-of-balance world.

Curated by CAC Multidisciplinary Arts Curator Erin Lee Antonak, the exhibition addresses our environmental crisis as a cultural challenge. The artists of Remember Earth? are storytellers, scientists, teachers, advocates, and activists who use the language of art to connect with people on a personal level, inspire action, and effect change.
