Country music songstress Kathy Mattea attended the first ever National Summit on the Arts and Environment in McLean, VA. The Summit, hosted by the Wolf Trap Foundation for the Performing Arts, Americans for the Arts, and The Aspen Institute, featured experts in the arts, media, environmental advocacy, and other fields coming together to create an alliance between the arts–and the environment.

Some of the recommendations the group agreed upon include creating a shared vision for the arts and environment, a National Council on the Arts and Environment, and asking artists to create an official environmental starting point.

Mattea, along with Kateri Callahan, Executive Director of the Alliance to Save Energy, had this to say: “If artists are encouraging their audiences to go green, they must be sure that their own backstage operations are green as well.”

Walking the talk. I like that.
