“Trashing Our Treasure” Photography Exhibit at Dallas City Hall, Main Lobby July 16-August 10, 2012
Dallas, TX, July 15, 2012 – Shared FUEL, a Dallas-based sustainable nonprofit, today announced that “Trashing Our Treasure,” a photography exhibit of litter at White Rock Lake, will be displayed in the main lobby of Dallas City Hall from July 16 through August 10. The event is free and open to the public.
Designed to educate, inform and motivate individuals to be aware of the environmental consequences of litter on our green public places, “Trashing Our Treasure” debuted during last year’s centennial celebration of White Rock Lake. The exhibit focuses on unnatural predators, such as styrofoam, plastics, aluminum cans and glass, that accumulate along the shoreline, particularly during storm events, and encroach upon the area’s wildlife habitats.
According to Alison Parker, exhibit coordinator and Shared FUEL’s program chair of The Litter Project, “We are excited about showcasing this educational exhibit at City Hall and encourage families to view it. We hope the photography transforms how people think about litter and its impact on nature.”
Says Annemarie Marek, president of Shared FUEL, “We care deeply about White Rock Lake because it is a green retreat for so many diverse groups and people in our city. We are very excited about the visual conversation that this show will generate and hope that it will motivate all to collaborate and innovate better ways to mitigate the litter problem.“
