The Procession of the Species Celebration in Olympia, Washington draws almost a quarter of Olympia’s population in either participating in creating art, walking in a celebratory parade, or watching on the side. The Procession of the Species is a ritualistic celebration of the natural environment, whiled building solidarity, responsibility, and community. Observations of the event and interviews with the founder and director serve to illustrate the connections of the Procession to the field of art education, with community-based art education and environmental art education as the bridging components of the community arts event.
