“Artful Sustainability” presents an exploration of artist-designed, innovative environmental projects across the country. Using case studies from Austin, TX, Seattle, WA, Philadelphia and New York City, the panelists show how artists use social practice models to provide out-of-the-box approaches to ecological challenges. Emphasis is on how art functions in engaging the community, especially in urban settings. Artists are reaching far outside the gallery to fully participate in the urgent issues confronting humanity today.
