The Solar Panel Art Series, powered by The Beam Magazine, is bringing the first 18 pieces of solar art to auction this week at the inaugural auction. The Solar Panel Art Series is an international initiative seeking to promote art as tool for change. By providing used solar panels to established artists to be turned into unique art works, the series raises funds to support the Little Sun Foundation Solar School Program.

Little Sun works to provide clean and reliable light for school children and their teachers in Rwanda as a means of breaking the cycle of energy poverty. The Foundation exists to deliver solar energy to the most vulnerable people in communities around the world in direct support of the United Nations’ seventeen Sustainable Development Goals.

As showcased on HypeBeast, this week’s auction will see 18 unique creations by renowned artists including Felipe Pantone, Katrin Fridriks, Rosh333, AKTEone, Carolina Amaya, Moneyless, Ron Miller, XOOOOX, and Yangkura sold. The pieces will be on display online at the Paddle8 online auction house from June 15th – 29th and in person at the Tech Open Air Festival in Berlin from June 19th – 22nd.

The beautiful works send a powerful message of renewable energy and disruptive change. The change brought about by solar energy is transformative for so many communities around the world where off-grid communities struggle to provide clean, safe light for their families.

Powering up these communities with clean, solar energy solutions like those provided by Little Sun Foundation has the potential to create a foundation for communities to step out of energy poverty and into an active role in the global energy transition towards a zero carbon economy. Eva Brandt, Head of The Little Sun Foundation, related that,

“Energy poverty is a global issue, but most people don’t know there are over 1 billion people who do not have access to clean and affordable light. The Solar Panel Art Series is a great example of how art can engage people to think about global togetherness and take action. We share the same mission. Together, we can bring light and energy to school children in Rwanda and spread sustainable energy around the globe.”

The live auction site will be live from June 15 – 29, 2018 on Paddle8 and is available to bidders worldwide.
