‘Ecolart', an exhibition put up by professional artists at Ravindra Kalabhabhavan here on Friday to create awareness about global warming, impressed visitors, a majority of whom were schoolchildren.

Organised jointly by Mangalore University, British Council (Chennai), the Association of British Scholars, Artists Combine and the science forum of University College, the exhibition drew huge crowds.
