Green Revolution is a hot new traveling show from the Smithsonian—an eco-friendly, minimal carbon footprint exhibition selected to compliment Denison’s 2013-14 campus theme Real Utopias: From Dreams to Practice. Denison Museum is partnering with Newark’s The Works to educate our Central Ohio community about the three pillars of sustainability: environment, society, and economy. We seek creative and engaging design proposals for low carbon footprint ‘eco-zibits’ that align with broad themes likes Carbon Footprint, Waste Not, Energy, Hybrid House, Composting and Gardening, and Green Jobs/Green Pioneers.
Check out the Exhibition Prospectus for information about themes and criteria and submit your Proposal online by Oct. 11, 2013. A final list of ‘eco-zibit’ projects (juried by Denison faculty, students and staff) will be announced no later than Oct. 18, 2013. Volunteers are needed to assemble the winning mini eco-exhibits from Oct. 21-Dec. 6. To volunteer and join the revolution, contact Sherry Harlacher at Denison Museum. Denison’s Green Revolution will be on display from February 20 – May 17, 2014.
