MTC and the Association of Bay Area Governments conducted Art on the Horizon: Youth Confronting Climate Change, the agencies’ first art contest for youth.
In mid-2019, MTC and ABAG selected winners of the “Art on the Horizon: Youth Confronting Climate Change,” the agencies' first-ever art contest for youth. The winners were announced at the Y-Plan Policy Summit at UC Berkeley on May 7, 2019.
Art on the Horizon contest overview: As part of the agencies’ Horizon planning initiative, MTC and ABAG sought digital art submissions that demonstrated what could be done to combat climate change. The contest was open to artists age 13 to 23, and the contest focused on video and photo mediums. The winners are listed below.
Winners were selected by a jury that included James Choe and David Cooper of ABAG and MTC staff; Sam Cooper, senior photo editor for WIRED; Kỳ-Nam Miller of MTC’s Policy Advisory Council; Christine Nguyen of the Bay Area Air Quality Management District staff; and Shaun Tai, executive director for Oakland Digital.
Congratulations to the winners and thanks to all of the artists who participated.
