Join V. Kelly Turner, assistant professor of urban planning at UCLA Luskin, and Lizy Dastin, art historian and adjunct professor of art history at Santa Monica College, for a public viewing of the first environmental mural of its kind: a large-scale, public art piece made from cooling surface paint to raise awareness about rising temperatures in cities. The mural by artist Eric Skotnes on a 27 x 72 foot brick wall on 1920s-era building in South Los Angeles will make a double visual impact — as an elegant eco-mural that enlivens the community and also as an infrared image documented by thermal camera. This project will raise the visibility of eco-efforts through the popularity of street art, and bring together the resources and expertise of an exciting group of collaborators: artists, urban planners, climate scholars, community activists and entrepreneurs.
