This may also be called eco-art, Art Nature, or restoration art, and may extend to socially and politically oriented efforts known as eco-activist art and environmental justice ecoart. Examples include Soul Salmon, an art action movement of Northwest American artists, businesses, institutions and tribes to protect native salmon, and artist Deborah Small s painted porcelain brick art statement to preserve Mono Lake in California that led to a landmark public trust law case. Eco-Art was represented at the 2002 World Summit on Sustainable Development in Johannesburg, South Africa, with a call for artists around the world to devote their next artwork to an environmental issue. In the 1975 Steven Spielberg movie version of Peter Benchley s novel Jaws, human characters battled a ferocious and malevolent shark. Real-life shark attacks are fairly uncommon, despite sensationalized media coverage. Numerous illustrations and examples of environmental art abound within North America and internationally, and may be found by reference to organizations and websites such as Enviroarts: Orion Online;, a collaborative online museum of environmental art; and Eikon, an online resource created by Artecology. Art Culture Nature, an association for the study of the arts and the environment, is an interdisciplinary organization founded in 1997, whose mission brings together artists and teachers in the fine and performing arts as well as environmentalists and educators in the humanities, sciences and social sciences who are interested in the study of the connections between the arts and environmental studies. The Association for the Study of Literature and the Environment provides links to many related environmental arts organization and electronic archives. Like water itself, the arts are not fixed, but fluid and constantly evolving and responding to change. The arts are also an ideal means by which humans explore, understand, communicate and challenge their culture, values, and ethics. The response to art may have philosophical, ecological, social, or political implications upon how societies and individuals live as an integral part of this water planet.

Ice inspires both the written and visual arts. Ice sculptures may first have been popularized by Catherine the Great of Russia in the eighteenth century. Ice sculpting had both aesthetic and practical appeal in the days before artificial refrigeration, as a way of helping to keep food cold. Food presentation is still a major impetus for professional ice sculptors, as ornamental displays at weddings and banquets, but international and national ice carving competitions abound and are a popular feature at winter carnivals worldwide. Ice hotels, made entirely of snow and ice, cater to adventurous and hardy tourists at Jukkasjarvi, Sweden and Montmorency Falls Park, Quebec, Canada.
