Comfort Level brings together seven artists working in regions across the US that have been directly impacted by climate change, giving a special urgency and immediacy to the works contributed. Building on Tool Book, a multi-disciplinary art project that provides a direct action platform for artists to share their work and raise funds for non-profit groups, Comfort Level will also premiere a unique artist’s edition titled “Tool Box.” Riffing on the idea of utility, Tool Box allows art to fill the gap between symbolism and usefulness. Each box contains five editioned works from different artists that function to inspire, support and create dialogues of care, communion, expression and comfort. Tool Box is a fundraiser for AgitArte, an organization of working class artists and cultural organizers, who are providing material and cultural aid in the aftermath of Hurricane Maria to the people of Puerto Rico.
