Aria Luna is one of the world’s youngest exhibiting artists and a changemaker who uses the power of her art to raise public awareness of issues impacting local and global communities. Her work has been exhibited internationally, sold to private collectors in the United States, and has raised funds for such causes as art programs, ocean conservation, and wildfire relief. As the youngest Artist for Tomorrow’s Air, she is excited about bringing attention to the importance of decarbonizing our atmosphere through her art.

In June 2020, she participated in two World Oceans Day events (co-sponsored by Ko Olina in Hawai’i and Ocean Future Fund in Australia). Aquarium of the Bay selected her as one of 30 artists to paint a 6-ft fiberglass sea lion statue for the 2020 “Sea Lions in San Francisco” public art exhibit. In 2019, she was among the artists selected by the Sierra Club for its national “Art and the Green New Deal” initiative.
