The Harding Art show started In 1975 and has grown into one of the best and most recognized art shows in Nashville. This year featured over 70 well established artists from across the United States. I was blown away with the professionalism and hospitality of this wonderful event that is so supportive of artists. Thank you Harding!
Laura created the above image for Global Citizen Earth Day 2015 in Washington, D.C. The design will be used in a variety of ways including a 9 x 14 foot mural in the V.I.P. tent.
Marking the 45th anniversary of Earth Day, Global Citizen 2015 Earth Day comes during a pivotal time to protect the planet and ensure that world leaders address key issues facing the next generation. Timed to coincide with the spring meetings of the World Bank Group and the International Monetary Fund, Global Citizen 2015 Earth Day will bring together global policymakers, finance ministers, environment and development NGOs, industry executives and high-profile artists.
Together, these world leaders will work to educate and inspire citizens to take immediate action to end extreme poverty and address climate change. The event is part of a widespread effort to mobilize global citizens in the climate and environmental movement, and the poverty and development movement to drive bold commitments from governments, businesses and individuals.
