The Mendocino Eco Artists (MEA) is presenting a special exhibit at the Mendocino Art Center in support of the nonprofit Mendocino Area Parks Association (MAPA) which benefits our local state parks. MAPA provides educational activities, interpretive programs and informative exhibits in our local parks and restores and conserves park structures. For further information, see mendoparks.org.
MEA is an organization of professional artists with the common goal of applying their talents to help conserve and restore the natural environment in our area. The members are professional artists who live, work, and draw their creative inspiration from this beautiful place. In addition, most of the artists also are dedicated volunteers to many local environmental organizations, among them the Salmon Restoration Association, Big River/Noyo Watershed Coalition, Mendocino Land Trust, California Wildlife Foundation, and the California Oak Foundation.
MEA’s mission is to support our partner organizations by exhibiting members' art both to raise money and to help increase public awareness of our natural environment. Hundreds of people have been inspired and entertained by the artwork and been informed of the ecological issues facing our region. In addition thousands of dollars have been raised for our partner organizations. Please visit mendocinoecoartists.org for information about the group and its members.
At least 30% of the proceeds from all sales from this exhibit will go directly to MAPA to help restore their Headlands facilities.
