CARTA Artist-In-Residence Xavier Cortada Created Artwork to Welcome Pope Francis’ Climate Change Message and Upcoming Historic U.S. Visit


Pope Francis plans to mark two historic milestones this year:

  • Issuing a rare “encyclical” (a letter of guidance to the whole church) – the first to focus primarily on climate change and human responsibility for the environment.
  • Visiting the United States and addressing a joint session of Congress – the first Pope ever to do so.

Please consider being part of these historic events by joining in a letter welcoming Pope Francis and his leadership on climate change. To join the letter, click here.

The featured image is the artwork created by CARTA artist-in-residence Xavier Cortada for the occasion, “ΙΧΘΥΣ (Ichthys).”
