Earth Week: Interactive Art and Design

Thursday, April 20, 2017 at 11:00 am to 3:00 pm

Event Café, University Center 63 Fifth Avenue, New York, NY 10003

Visit this pop-up exhibition of student, faculty, and alumni work reflecting on the importance of nature and the threat of climate change in our lives.


In the University Center Lobby: 

Students from Water & The Elements Seminar, taught by Associate Professor Jean Gardner, celebrate Earth Day. They explore a new Mindset for Earth, Air, Water, & Fire. Our familiar relationship to The Elements as Resources has led to humanly-caused earthquakes, deepening sea waters, unbreathable air, and increased wildfires. Come explore how rather than intervening in nature, we can align with her primal elements.


In the University Center Event Cafe:

Illustrations from “Beyond the Polar Bears: Alternative Visuals for existing social media platforms that communicate to new audiences about climate change,” a collaboration with led by part-time faculty member Wendy Popp, will be on display to provide visual ideas with which to connect the public and college audiences with engaging digital storytelling artworks that help communicate key climate messages.


This event is supported by the Tishman Environment and Design Center
