Earth Day Recap Celebration at the Arlington Theater


Updated by the Community Environment Council

earth day every day

Earth Day is always a special celebration, but after two years of virtual gatherings, the joy of being together in person was palpable. Every day, the Community Environmental Council team pushes for a whole community approach to climate action, and this celebration provides an opportunity to share ideas, enthusiasm and ways to make a difference.

We enjoyed seeing you all on Earth Day and hope you will join us in taking climate action in your homes and communities. Stay connected via email and CEC’s social media profiles to see all the ways you can make a difference in your community. After all, Earth Day is every day.

Earth Day 2022 Mural!

This year’s mural winner was Maria Arroyo. His vision became a reality through Slingshot, a progressive nonprofit art studio that supports artists with intellectual and developmental disabilities in Santa Barbara.

We would like to thank the Museum of Contemporary Art Santa Barbara and the Paseo Nuevo for their partnership this year. Be sure to visit the upper level of the Paseo Nuevo parking structure to see the mural in person!

See Slingshot’s Instagram for some behind-the-scenes footage of the process!
