Description: The GREEN ART PARADE is a curated street spectacle of sculptures, art bikes, green fashion and performances by Southern California artists with a message about the environment. My vision for the parade is to bring a temporary, mobile artistic exhibition of creative voices to the streets of San Diego to spark dialogue about art and the environment. The projects included in the parade express green design theories, utilize recycled materials and express a significant environmental concern.
