Creating art inspired by land
In celebration of the interconnectedness of people and nature, the Coalition of Oregon Land Trusts (COLT) has partnered with Wetlands Conservancy, Wallowa Land Trust, Wild Rivers Land Trust, and Greenbelt Land Trust to commission local artists to create art inspired by land. Throughout October and November, artists visited a property in their area that is currently protected and preserved by a local land trust, drawing inspiration from the landscape to create a unique piece of art.
All artwork created for Art on the Land will be part of an online raffle this December hosted by COLT, and 100% of the money raised will go to the Chúush Fund to support the Confederated Tribes of Warm Springs as they work to restore their access and infrastructure for clean water.
The Art on the Land raffle goes live on December 2 and runs through December 12. Stay tuned to see the artwork, hear the story behind each creation, and grab a raffle ticket for your chance to take home one of these unique pieces while supporting the Chúush Fund.
