STAUNTON, Va. (WHSV)-- The P.E.A.K. Art show opened at "16 West" in downtown Staunton.
P.E.A.K. stands for 'Public Energy Art Kit'.
The purpose of the show is to raise awareness of the importance of renewable energy through art.
All the lights in gallery run on solar power. People there said they hope it makes audiences think about the importance of renewable energy.
"We need to build a future for our children and the next generation coming along. We keep using up our resources we're not going to have anything left to give them and we're not going to have the beautiful world that we have today," said Sissy Hutching, a Staunton neighbor.
"It''s changed over the past few years as far as when I was a little kid and I would hate to see that change continue to get worse so we want to make it a better place," said Hutching.
The art will be on display through the entire month of July.
