Celebrating Planet Earth

Updated: Mar 5

The ACWL-Nuveen is teaming up with the White Lake Area Climate Action Council to coordinate a community-wide Art Display for Earth Day 2021. Artwork created by both youth and adults will be displayed at participating White Lake area businesses April 20 – May 4 with multiple prizes being awarded!


How do you get involved?


To be included in the White Lake Climate Art Display for Earth Day 2021, participants of all ages can pick up a free re-purposed 12”x12” canvas or 12”x12” cardboard display square at the ACWL-Nuveen by April 19th. You can also create your artwork for the exhibit from your own 12”x12” canvas or cardboard display but please note to stay within the 12” format because we are using this as a unifying art module for the exhibit.

- Thursday, April 1, 3:00 – 5:00 p.m.
