John Sabraw - The UN Sustainable Development Goals, Local is Global: Pretty Poison to Clean Water to Art
Artist Activist John Sabraw Is a Professor of Art and Chair of Painting + Drawaing at Ohio University, where he is working to return southeastern Ohio’s streams to the picture of health.
Sabraw has partnered with Dr. Guy Riefler, Professor of Civil Engineering at Ohio University to extract toxic acid mine drainage (AMD) from polluted streams and turn it into paint pigment. Once the pigment is sold on a commercial scale, revenue will be invested back into the streams’ remediation. Sabraw tells the pigments’ story via his circular artwork.
