American Artist Xavier Cortada Talked About Eco-Art

--Helsinki, Finland
American Artist Xavier Cortada visited the U.S. Embassy and gave a presentation on eco-art on July 8. The emphasis in eco-art is on collaboration across disciplines—artist to scientist to public official and beyond. Eco-art also engages communities to address environmental problems directly, and in highly creative ways. Mr. Cortada emphasized how everybody - artists and individuals alike – can make a difference by small actions. After his presentation Mr. Cortada and Chargé d'Affaires Michael Butler planted  a native tree and a green flag on the U.S. Embassy compound to encourage people all over the planet to help reforest their communities.
