BP Arrives

PIPELINES & BORDERLINES: People Can't Drink OIL! Print Portfolio

BP Arrives 
"BP Arrives" Linocut by Rene Arceo

Artist's Statement:
"My print is about the pollution threat we, in Chicago, are under because of the PB plant located in Whiting, Indiana, a stone's throw away from the third largest city in the United States. On the bottom of the composition I included several Chicago buildings and coming from the top a giant gentle, ghost-like figure, beginning to cover and darken the sky. The giant ghost, who comes from BP plant, leaves across its path the polluting chemicals that plant processes and dumps in our environment. This includes ammonia, sulfur, nox, pm10, voc, so2, co, chloride, mercury and lead."
