Written by Perrin GrauerLed by artist Kyle Scheurmann (MFA 2018), the Art Auction for Old Growth has its roots in the realization that many Canadians see old-growth logging as a localized issue.

Visual artist Kyle Scheurmann sits with Perrin Grauer from Emily Carr University to discuss "Art Auction for Old Growth" in support of the Nature-Based Solutions Foundation. The auction features work by 16 artists including ECU alumni and faculty hoping to raise more than $56,000 in donated works.
“This auction came from the desire to bring eastern awareness, support and fundraising to what many perceive as a BC-only problem,” Kyle tells me via email. “Old-Growth logging affects everyone globally.”
