Eco-art Caucus Mission
The Eco-art Caucus is the environmental art group of the Women’s Caucus for Art. Our goal is to inform, support and highlight environmental awareness through art practice. We celebrate historic environmental and land art projects, embrace site specificity and social issues while highlighting the broad and multidisciplinary approaches to the field of environmental & land art.
Mission for the year ahead (1.) Connect with legacy members who have written critically and participated in the field of environmental and land art with the help of the National Organization. (2.) (a.) Develop a National Organizational stance on the environmental issues facing society and (b.) Develop a commitment or stance in response to the crisis of global warming and the artist and national art organization role. (3.) Possibly develop a call for participation in an existing project or an online exhibition if feasible. (4.) Continue to solicit for Social Media content from chapters and members.

To reinvigorate and revitalize the JWAN Caucus by:
● Recognizing diversity within the caucus/membership of Jews of color, LGBTQ and Jews by choice as well as others who identify
with Jewish values. Being open to women of all experiences and backgrounds that create a rich diversity of thought and practice, not limited to Mizrahi/Sephardic and Ashkenazi backgrounds.
● Reflecting and exploring topics through a Jewish lens via exhibitions, panels, lectures or presentations (zoom or in-person). Explorations of social justice, environment, immigration, ritual, spirituality and tikkun olam (repairing the world), among others can be used to explore the intersection of art, culture and Jewish values. Reflecting on the universality of these topics by facilitating conversations and connections through online art shares, exhibiting artists talks, and other opportunities.

Young Women’s Caucus
Chair: Veronica Clements, Chicago Chapter
I envision the YWC growing in membership and diversity through social media marketing and face to face interactions. I would like our social media presence to grow and for us to gain members and notoriety from that. I would also like to work with the exhibitions committee to put together shows in the Chicago area that highlight the work of emerging women artists.
