April 22 is Earth Day, marking the 46th anniversary of the birth of the modern environmental movement.

To celebrate and inspire global action, 35 artists are showcasing their work online with the Oakland-based nonprofit Art Works for Change. The eclectic works, which range from dystopian paintings of future Earth to installations of trash mounds, ask viewers to join in the fight against climate change.

"The series poses questions about the future ramifications of unsustainable practices," she tells Tech Insider.
