Want to Raise Awareness of Rising Sea Levels at This Year’s Pastels on the Plaza?
From the City of Arcata:
Use your artistic skills to raise awareness of rising sea levels by entering the Sea Level Rise Awareness art contest. The winning artist will recreate their work on a large sidewalk square during Pastels on the Plaza on Saturday, October 7. Entries are due at 5 p.m. on Monday, September 25 at the Community Development Department at Arcata City Hall. Work should be one by two feet, or similarly proportioned. The winning entry will be announced on Friday, September 29. Visit www.cityofarcata.org/759/Sea-Level-Rise for more information.
October is Sea Level Rise Awareness Month and this art contest is one way the Arcata Planning Division is helping people learn about sea level rise as the Arcata City Council explores potential responses to this challenge.
City staff will be at the Arcata Farmers Market on Saturday, September 16 and 23, and at Arts! Arcata on the Plaza on Friday, October 13 with sea level rise information. Stop by, get informed about rising sea levels, and bring your questions and ideas.
For more information about the City’s sea level rise response and opportunities to contribute your ideas, sign up for sea level rise meeting eNotifications at www.cityofarcata.org, or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
