I am very excited to announce RENEW, my book of collaborative public art and poetry about climate change, which will be out on September 12. The book is over 100 pages in full color, designed by Erik Moe, and has images and poetry from the public art projects WRAPture and Warming Waters and recent installations and performances in New York, Paris, Rome, Miami Beach, and Katakhali, Bangladesh.

We will have a “Driveway Salon and Book Launch” in DC in my driveway on September 12, 2020 at 7 pm.  This is in lieu of an exhibition that was planned for this fall.  

We will show exclusive new videos from performances in Paris and Italy. Pick a 30 minute visit slot. Only 15 tickets per 30 minute slot. Raindate: September 13.

Please preorder your signed books now. The book will have a limited run of 250 copies at $30. In addition, I will create 50 pieces with a special hand-cut cover with sari insert at $50 each.   Our community poetry contributors will receive complimentary copies of the book.

You may pre-pay by venmo @monica-bose (preferred), CashApp $monicaartivist,  Paypal, or by sending a check made out to Monica Jahan Bose, 2017 Belmont Rd NW, Washington DC 20009. If you would like the book mailed to you, please add $5 shipping and handling.  Thank you so much for supporting this climate justice project.
