The climate is changing, and so must we. City of Water Day aims to educate and inspire action to meet this challenge. On this 15th year of City of Water Day, Perth Amboy Artworks is proud to participate in the region-wide day to raise awareness about the dangers we all face from sea level rise and climate change, and to advocate for a climate resilient New York and New Jersey harbor.

Advocating for Innovative Arts Projects

Perth Amboy Artworks President Caroline Pozycki Torres was asked to contributed a Voices from the Field Blog story for the arts advocacy group ArtPride NJ. The story “Catch Basin Murals a Hit for Earth Day in Perth Amboy” is an easy to reference document on how to do a catch basin mural project. As grant funds were just released for the NJ Clean Communities program, this is valuable information for municipalities across the state that want to address litter in an innovative way. The funds can be used on catch basin murals because the murals serve as tools for environmental education, and tools for litter control and storm water management. Catch basin murals (though beautiful) are not considered beautification, as they are done in conjunction with storm drain cleaning and adoption.
