This Sunday: Solar Eagle Taking Flight for 350.org EARTH
We know that many CicLAvia blog readers are also interested in working on climate change issues. On 10/10/10, we saw many participants of 350.org’s Global Work Party (which took the form of a rally to Kick Coal and Oil Out of L.A.) out on the CicLAvia streets.
This weekend, 350.org is launching its EARTH initiative, which will use participatory public art projects to raise awareness about climate change. Here in L.A., artist John Quigley will be creating and orchestrating the shape of a Solar Eagle Taking Flight, combining solar panels and thousands of people for an aerial image that will be photographed by satellite. If you want your picture taken from space while supporting climate action, all you have to do is show up:
Where: L.A. State Historic Park,1245 N. Spring St., LA, CA 90012
When: Sunday, November 21, 9:30 – 11:15 AM
Why: UN Climate Negotiations kick off in Cancun one week later, and this a chance to come together creatively to rise to the climate challenge.
Get there: CARPOOL; Metro Rail, the park is less than a block away from the Chinatown Station on the gold line. If you BIKE, your bicycle may be part of the image as well.
