NYU Libraries invites our community members to help us imagine sustainable, equitable, and joyful futures in a new exhibition opening spring 2023. The Crafting Sustainable Futures exhibition will creatively envision a world that recognizes our shared responsibility for preserving the planet we all call home. We encourage you to join the conversation about our interconnected existence and a positive ecological future by submitting an artwork proposal for this community showcase.
NYU students, faculty, staff, and alumni—are invited to develop artistic pieces inspired by NYU Reads selections and *This Is Not A Drill* artworks, put in dialogue with topics of ecological sustainability, environmental justice, and the power of hope as we navigate the climate emergency. Artworks will be rendered into a digital format and printed in full-color on 3-foot-by-7-foot panels, to be installed in Bobst Gallery for a March 8, 2023 exhibition opening. Proposals should include a description of the artwork and detail how it connects to the above mentioned themes.
Crafting Sustainable Futures is a collaboration between NYU Libraries, Tisch School of the Arts’ *This Is Not A Drill* program, the NYU Office of Sustainability’s 2040 Now initiative, and the Office of the Provost's NYU Reads program. The exhibition will be a part of NYU's 2040 Now programing.
Proposals will be accepted through December 18, 2022, at 11:59 PM using the online form.
