My recent work for Shade in LA, an installation at Arroyo Arts Collective to bring awareness to shade access, has been featured on the Sierra Club Blog and The Eastsider. My work discusses ways the privileged contribute to rising heat and suffering, often, in the ways that they escape it.

My work was selected to be a part of Taking it to the Next Degree, a show bringing focus to action in the face of rising heat, drought and wildfire. On view at Ave 50 Studio through September.


Climate Challenge

I hosted a month long Climate Challenge during May 2022. If you’d like to take the challenge, go here: https://dianakohne.com/course/challenge/. It’s free. My challenge addresses the most significant ways you contribute to climate change. I assign small actionable tasks to help you begin your new, low emission existence. The cure for eco-anxiety is to be the change.
