WASHINGTON (ABC7) — An exhibit in D.C. is hoping to "inspire optimism" and raise concerns about climate change by sending visitors "100 years into the future!"
Artechouse is presenting its 4th annual 'Cherry Blossom inspired installation' with a conservation twist, which will be available from March 15 to September 6, 2021.
The exhibit doesn't have a time machine, and ABC7's Kidd O'Shea will help demonstrate the "immersive, technology-driven" installation.
Artechouse wrote the following of its exhibit:
This original ARTECHOUSE production utilizes the power of creative technology to transport visitors into an imagined future 100 years from now where nature’s resilience takes center stage amongst an overdeveloped metropolis, empowering visitors to interact to help the blooms of our future continue to renew.
The exhibit will be open to all ages and will be located at 1238 Maryland Avenue, SW.
“Every year we get inspired by the incredible power and beauty of nature to bring the cherry blossom season and its message of renewal and reflection to life at our innovative art space," Sandro, the founder and Cheif Creative Officer of Artechouse wrote in the release. "This year, we felt it was imperative to spotlight the collective environmental responsibility needed to ensure that our natural surroundings thrive. We hope that this installation will inspire visitors to be part of the positive change.”
