Sustainability-focused art show submittals due

With its move to the center of campus under the Fountain View Dining Hall, the UNCG Sustainability Office is creating opportunities to help make the issues of sustainability visible in some less expected ways as well.

In a pilot effort titled “Make a Show of It” the UNCG Sustainability Office has equipped the front half of its new office space to function as an art gallery and hired two student art curators who will each mount shows in Spring 2018.

The two shows are:

  • The American Dream – submittals due Jan. 7, 2018; and
  • Consume – three submittal opportunities
    • Production – due Dec. 15, 2017
    • Waste – due Jan. 12, 2018
    • Self – due Feb. 6, 2018.

Submittals are open to students, faculty, staff, and the broader community with priority given to artists with UNCG connections. Funding for the pilot has been provided by the UNCG Green Fund.

Full details on submittal requirements for each show can be found on the UNCG Sustainability webpages at https://sustainability.uncg.edu/sustainability-art-shows/
