More Earth-Breaking News:

Sculptress Carol Rensink recently dedicated her MOTHER EARTH ECO-SCULPTURE on Mother's Day, in a series of artworks initiated through the HOUSTON WOMEN'S CAUCUS FOR ART to express concern for women's health issues and the environment. The 80-foot long grassy Earth sculpture in Challenger Seven Memorial Park depicts Mother Earth with a pregnant belly and an amputated breast, symbolizing the loss of life to cancer and the need for cure.
