As artists, we are so over with the Anthropocene, that is, our current geological epoch marked by planetary and climate changes driven by one species: humanity.  This season, The Only Animal begins artwork of the EcoZoic Era, that is, when humans live in a mutual relationship with Earth and all forms of life herein.  We are calling for, and creating work that is green, not just because we recycle the set, or use carbon offsetting, but because art itself gives back to the earth, the work itself is ecological restoration, combined with our own vivacity and fun. Read about our projects below, and visit the Artist Brigade to join us in this work. And, if you like, scroll down and see the wild work of the last 17 years that brought us to this moment.
