Art For An Oil-Free Coast

Fifty artists will take up paintbrushes and carving tools to portray Canada's fragile "raincoast," the results of which will be published in an art book. Their goal is to bring attention to the dramatic beauty and ecological diversity of B.C.'s central and north coast that will be at risk if tankers are permitted to ship tar sand oil through the region's narrow and dangerous channels.
