ArtWalks were featured all throughout San Diego during the weeks surrounding Earth Day. City College’s Environmental Stewardship Committee sponsored the first annual ArtWalk for the Earth.
From April 19 to 22 and from April 26 to 29, the Curran Plaza hosted live graffiti art and Earth-conscious performance art for those passing through campus. Dancers passed out strips of paper to spectators providing a “Did you know …” about being more environmentally conscious.
Terry Wilson, dance professor and event director, stated, “We will do it . to raise consciousness. It helps somebody make a little bit of a change.”
Other participants included performances by City dancers, artwork by Wayne Hulgin and Terry Hughes-Oelrich’s students, and sculptures by YC Kim.
The performances in the plaza led students to the library and Seeds at City Urban Farm for more Earth-friendly information. This event is set to take place next year with even more participants.
