Story Behind This Mural

Jet’s mural focuses on the seldom discussed impact of California’s floriculture industry on coastal ecosystems.

Artist Statement

Generally my florals address issues of revolution, culture and resilience. In this case, I looked into the worldwide floral industry. I am specifically interested in some of the practices in industrial floral agriculture and how they introduce massive quantities of chemicals into our fresh waterways and oceans via runoff.

The Focus

Floriculture's impact on the ocean

Take Action

Be an informed flower buyer and opt for wild flowers or organically farmed flowers.
