We’re excited to announce the ‘Stand & Resist: Artists Protect the Salish Sea’ series of events!

Here’s the scoop: Stand.earth will showcase local and regional artists who explore the intertwined issues of the Salish Sea, place and home, climate and fossil fuel threats, and alternative futures.

Stand & Resist takes two forms: An evening of live performance art on 3/29 at the Whatcom Museum in Bellingham, WA, and a week and a half long (3/29 to 4/7) exhibit of visual arts (hours below) at the Sylvia Center for the Arts, capped by a public reception on April 7th during Bellingham’s monthly Art Walk.
