Angelenos Co-Create Giant 'Solar Eagle' to Promote Climate Action
Hundreds of Angelenos braved the wet weather Sunday morning to take part in 350 eARTh, the world's first-ever global climate art project visible from space.
The installation at Los Angeles State Historic Park formed the shape of a "Solar Eagle Taking Flight," combining solar photovoltaic film sheets and copper, accented with people.
"For over 200 years the eagle has been a symbol of America. The Solar Eagle represents an America based on a clean green energy economy. As the Solar Eagle takes flight, so too will our prosperity," said installation director John Quigley of Spectral Q.
