In 2014, The Lexicon of Sustainability™ continues to invite community leaders, students, farmers, activists, gardeners, cooks … anyone to host a Pop-Up show in their community, spurring dialog about how individuals and communities can work together to strengthen local food systems.
In all, 100 applicants from across the USA will be selected. Each will host shows that involve their local communities, then act as a “lending library” so that other schools and community groups can use their show for their own initiatives.
Transform your community into an “idea incubator”, a localized think tank that generates dynamic coalitions able to make a difference in reshaping your community’s relationship with its food, farmers, and local environment. And because these works will be donated to your community after these shows, the messages will retain their significance and continue to inspire audiences for years to come.
Sponsored by Consolidated Graphics (CGX), and with critical funding support from the
to build frames for each show, this groundbreaking exhibition of large format information artworks takes art out of its traditional museum and gallery setting and allows individuals and local groups to host their own shows; you can host a temporary, mobile personalized art events. The exhibit is printed on FSC-certified paper, which guarantees that it comes from forests that are managed in accordance with strict environmental standards. Over 3000 images will be given away during the course of the exhibition.
Prospective curators can complete an application (see link above) which asks WHY they want to be a curator, WHERE they would hold their five Lexicon shows, and WHO they would involve (local schools, non-profits, food producers, notable individuals) in their events. Additionally, prospective curators will be asked to select a community space or center (i.e. a school, library, or government building) where the images will become part of a permanent collection once the shows are completed.
