SPILL: CRUDE RESPONSE, combines photography capturing the Gulf Oil Spill and Sculptural installations made from waste stream plastics. Featured artists, Daniel Beltra and Aurora Robson, reveal our cultures deep connection to oil, uncovering beauty within tragedy. SPILL speaks both to the idea of human beings as indelibly tied to their environment and also to the intellectual rapture found in contemplating organic forms. 212 gallery owner, Katie Kiernan, brought SPILL artists to Aspen to coincide with discussions taking place at the Aspen Institute's, Environment Forum, to share a first hand view of the Gulf Oil Spill and to put a focus on the how important and vital the ocean is to our collective daily existence.

212 Gallery in partnership with The Baum Foundation and Artist's Subjects will donate 10% percent of exhibition proceeds to the following non-profit organizations to clean up plastic and oil from the Ocean. Ocean Voyages Institute - for Project Kaisei - www.projectkaisei.org and Greater New Orleans Foundation - for Gulf Oil Spill Fund - www.gnof.org
