I’ve devised a simple formula so YOU can easily transform a baseball cap into an intriguing conversation starter, a. Worn backwards and painted with an Orange-Red background color, the cap symbolizes a firefighter’s helmet for acknowledging our current emergency to put out the fire of global warming. Then, from researching YOUR chosen climate issue, select images, data, and a climate slogan for your Cap! Create one as an individual, but it’s more fun done with others. How about an intergenerational family project? [See VIDEO in site-menu for details]
I was fortunate to be an artist-in-residence at Manship Artists Residency + Studios in Gloucester, MA on Cape Ann. In addition to it being a rejuvenating respite from the summer heat of New York City, it provided me with two important opportunities: to publicly test a prototype of my new interactive piece Portrait of Climate Change: Floods at the Sawyer Free Library; and to work with the talented local videographer, Lisa Smith, on my How To Make A Climate Change EmergencyCap video.

In May of 2021, I completed former US Vice President Al Gore’s Climate Reality Leadership Corps Training course led by him and a team of noted thought leaders, activists, and scientists. Anyone can attend, it’s free, and takes place on Zoom. https://www.climaterealityproject.org/training

HOW THE TRAINING WORKS: The attendees [2,500+ at my 2021 Spring Session] are divided into small groups with an assigned Mentor from your geographic region. These groups meet on Zoom to share reactions to the major Training Presentations, ask questions, and share between each other. Then they meet monthly (optional) post-Training for mutual support. Below pic of me wearing one of my Climate Change EmergencyCaps I shared at the end of one of our Small Group Meetings.
