The Honor: People, Salmon & Orcas exhibit is currently being displayed at Patagonia Seattle through June! Honor: People, Salmon & Orcas is an exhibit of works by artists who create art to evoke support - and action - for protecting and restoring salmon and orcas, and the many communities that honor and cherish these emblematic species. A project of the Save Our wild Salmon Coalition, Northwest Artists Against Extinction brings artists together to inspire change in perspective and policy that honors past, present, and future generations in the stewardship of lands and waters, and fish and wildlife.
Learn more about Honor: People, Salmon, & Orcas and see participating artists here. Contact the Northwest Artists Against Extinction Creative Director Britt Freda, firstname.lastname@example.org, with questions about Honor: People & Salmon and to get involved.
