This is an in-person event
In conjunction with renewable energy retailer Octopus Energy US, Galleria Dallas presents a celebration of Earth Day 2021 in partnership with EarthX. The exhibit is designed to educate the public on the current environmental state of the planet, the effects of climate change on humanity and the power that individual people possess to make a positive and collective impact.
The exhibit will feature a large wall installation showcasing different environmental focus areas along with actions consumers can take to reduce their carbon footprint. Each area will feature QR codes leading to a companion website with supporting materials provided by Octopus Energy, EarthX, and additional resources.
In addition, Dallas-based artist Jessica Bell will present an art installation spanning a 16-foot storefront window at the shopping center, curated by Gossypion Investments, and commissioned by Octopus Energy US. For this piece, Bell will use these forgotten and discarded artworks to make a colorful, eye-catching installation that will inspire viewers to consider what they can save from the landfill by finding a creative new use.
As part of the month long installation, Octopus Energy chose to partner with Green Careers Dallas, a non-profit organization that provides solar installation training to residents of South Dallas. Octopus Energy will be donating $50 to Green Careers Dallas for every new customer sign-up through the activation and guests will also be able to donate directly to the organization through the accompanying microsite.
