The idea of “Artists for the Great Marsh,” initiated by Peter H Van Demark, is to have a continuing artistic focus on the whole Great Marsh, including painting, sculpture, photography, music, video, dance, prose, poetry, theater, and any other creative endeavors, to bring attention to the importance, beauty, and fragility of the Great Marsh, because climate change is accelerating the damage to our coastal resources. Artists are masters at conveying information to and evoking responses from the public, which needs to know about the problems and their solutions.
