Online PR News – 08-February-2011 – – Encinitas, CA----The Grauer School located in Encinitas was invited to install a photographic display at San Diego International Airport/Lindbergh Field of revealing photographs depicting the Southern California coastline taken by eleven Grauer School students during a recent expedition. The students traveled along the California coastal route in search of unique subjects illustrating the raw nature of the coastal wilderness and wildlife. Entitled, ”Portraits of California”, the exhibit is displayed on the East side of Terminal Two on the Youth Art Wall and will be available for viewing through June 1, 2011.
According to Teacher Christy Goodson of The Grauer School Center for Visual and Performing Arts, “The images tell a story of Southern California in a pictorial format. It portrays students engaging in the natural coastal environment while admiring the developing culture, making steadfast relationships with nature and engrossing themselves in an unforgettable exploratory search for the essence of what makes our coastal terrain so unique. Our California coastline is a distinctive eco-culture that has been subject to massive development over the past century and these photographic images reflect the rich ecological heritage that still exists.”
Sponsored by WiLDCOAST, the Youth Art Wall conservation art project program was implemented on December 8, 2009, at Lindbergh Field with the goal of heightening awareness for their mission to maintain the preservation of the coastal terrain. WiLDCOAST is comprised of environmental groups whose objective is to conserve coastal and marine ecosystems and protect wildlife. The organization has protected over 21,000 acres and 22 miles of coastline through private lands acquisitions and has helped prevent several large development projects that would permanently alter the unique natural landscapes of the Baja California Peninsula.
