Pop-Up Art Show
The Lexicon of Sustainability™ has selected 24 information artworks from their project and invites community leaders, students, farmers, activists, gardeners, and cooks to curate their Lexicon Pop-Up shows in their community. The works are ideal for spurring dialog about how individuals and communities can work together to strengthen their local food systems. Curators host shows in their local communities, then act as a “lending library” so that other schools and community groups can use their show for their own initiatives.
“What began as a Sustainable Conversation has led to a Good Food Revolution,” says Douglas Gayeton, co-founder of the project. “It isn’t happening in galleries and museums; it’s happening at our local supermarkets, at our corner stores, at farmers markets and roadside food stands and grange halls and school gardens across the country, so it makes sense that the Lexicon traveling show appear in those places, curated by the very people trying to build more resilient food networks in their communities.”
By becoming a Lexicon curator, you can bring change to your own backyard. Curators have the power to transform their community into a “idea incubator”, a localized think tank that generates dynamic coalitions able to make a difference in shaping the community’s relationship with its food, farmers, and local environment. And because these works will be donated to your community once the shows have run their course, the messages will retain their significance and continue to inspire local audiences for years to come.
All of the Pop Up Shows are printed on 100% post consumer waste paper from New Leaf. New Leaf Paper’s goal is to inspire a fundamental shift toward environmental responsibility
in the paper industry. Feel good about using paper again …and again!
