Art is a funny thing, really. It can be created for sheer aestheticism, a means of provocative expression, maybe a non-verbal way to highlight a point. All of these uses encompass the latest exhibition taking place at the Museum of History and Art, Ontario.

Ignite!, a group show featuring the works of California based artists, revolves around the conversation of environmentalism and sustainability. Spanning the nearly 164,000 square miles of California’s soil, thirteen artists were hand-picked to represent and offer their insight on the relationship between nature and man.

Utilizing a multidisciplinary approach, the exhibit offers a striking look at sustainability utilizing photography, drawing, painting and an intriguing video installation from Kim Abeles. The eyes and automobiles depicted in the photos of Abeles work are in full motion—a non-stop display of blinking beside excerpts of LA traffic. The concept of pollution is emphasized in a truly unique way.
