Protect Pollinators – Pollinators are an especially important part of the Earth’s ecosystems because they are responsible for ensuring the reproduction of most of our planet’s flowering plants. We can protect pollinators by planting native plants that help them thrive – and in turn, they’ll protect us too!
About the Artist:
Ed Lum is a fourth generation Chinese American and the youngest sibling of three; born in 1966 at Hollywood Presbyterian Hospital and raised in El Sereno, just seven miles from downtown Los Angeles. He currently lives in the Monterey Trailer Park, which was awarded Los Angeles Historic Cultural Monument status in 2002. Ed’s gifts as an artist were evident as a young child and throughout his school years. While taking art courses at various colleges and searching for something different, his love of everything vintage began and would come to influence his life and work. A talented graphic artist, Ed’s artwork has qualities reminiscent of early 20th century travel posters and the WPA artists of the 1930s and 1940s. See more of Ed’s work at MisterLum.com.
