Climate change mural project coming to CMC
The energy nonprofit Community Office for Resource Efficiency (CORE) is creating a mural project that will span three CMC locations (Aspen, Carbondale and Glenwood Springs) to tell the story of climate change.
Titled “Stories of Climate Change/Historias del Cambio Climático,” the multicultural project will debut this spring as the centerpiece of CORE’s third annual “Imagine Climate” project using art to inspire climate action. The project is the result of a partnership with the Inside Out Project, the French artist JR’s global portrait initiative.
