Julia Galloway - Endangered Species Project

"I am an Artist, and art is a catalyst for change."

The Endangered Species Project features an installation of over 1200 burial urns, one created for each North American endangered, threatened, extinct, or recovered species listed under the Endangered Species Act. The urns are not made for use, they are displayed empty as a sign of hope. By making an urn for each species, it is making species rarely seen, visible.
