‘Tar Sands: Time Is Running Out,’ 2010. Acrylics on Canvas. 20ft X 24ft. 


What is the impact of the TarSands?

Concerned individuals voice painful truths about the most destructive human-made project in history.

Sixty people, from kids to elders, came to learn and share knowledge on the resource extraction mega-project known as the Tar Sands in northern Alberta. This large-scale mobile mural documents reflections and insights about the impact on the lives and land of the people involved. The painting process took only one month, intending to unveil it at the G20, Group of Twenty, an international forum for the governments and central bank governors from 19 countries and the European Union (EU) in Toronto.


The painting is a mobile mural available for educators, community organizers, activists, artists, and leaders to use at events and actions.


Social Lead Artists & Facilitators (Volunteers): Sara Kendall and Melanie Schambach
