Hauser &Wirth Gallery has created a limited edition print featuring this new iteration of an iconic Jenny Holzer “Truism” for the 50th Anniversary of Earth Day. (The one above was first displayed in Dupont Circle, DC in 1986.) Fifty years after that first Earth Day, its timely message resonates more deeply than ever as we face unprecedented global health and environmental crises.

Equally as powerful is Holzer’s succinct commentary:

Every day is Earth Day.

Under the umbrella of Hauser & Wirth’s new global philanthropic initiative #artforbetter, Hauser & Wirth and Jenny Holzer will donate the sales proceeds of the print to two causes: the COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund for the World Health Organization and Art for Acres. To buy a print, visit Hauser & Wirth.

…Meanwhile, Holzer has also taken to Instagram to post Truisms regarding the current situation…
