LOVE LETTERS TO THE GREAT LAKES
— A GROWING PUBLIC ART project that gives voice to the lakes and inspires our communities to care for and protect them.
In 2016, our team was thrilled to collaborate with the PangeaSeed Foundation for the very first international fresh water edition of "Sea Walls: Artists for Oceans” in Toronto, called a ‘Love Letter to the Great Lakes'.
Together, these efforts brought a much needed voice to the Great Lakes and the many environmental issues that threaten their health. The inaugural Love Letter to the Great Lakes was a dynamic presentation of art and activism in the form of 23 legacy mural artworks in June 2016.
Our ongoing objective is to beautify neighbourhoods, galvanize communities, and most importantly, stimulate a broader public awareness of the critical issues facing this breath-taking and unique natural water resource. The Great Lakes system contains a staggering 95% of North America’s surface freshwater and provides life to 35 million people.
With each Love Letter to the Great Lakes we bring a reason to care about the Lakes to each heart and mind we touch through meaningful, artful solutions.
A picture is worth far more than a thousand words.
We believe that an explosion of creativity, art, and design can transcend cultural and linguistic boundaries, inspiring positive global change.
PangeaSeed Foundation and the Love Letter Projects team collaborate with today’s most influential creative minds to help give large bodies of water the voice they so desperately need.
Plans to protect air and water, wilderness and wildlife are in fact plans to protect man.
