Negotiated Localities: Artists, Designers and Citizens in a Green City
This lecture series invites a diverse community to dive deeply into the subject of how a city is best sustained. Interactive sessions, workshops and installations by leading artists and thinkers—global and local— will focus on Chicago as a site for sustainable urban practices. Refreshments from local green eateries, an expert-guided bus tour of sustainable initiatives and projects throughout Chicago and the ability to make your voice heard through Open Mic, makes this first-time event one not to be missed. Presented in conjunction with the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago’s symposium Massive Change and the City: Global Visionaries Symposium featuring Mayor Richard M. Daley, Bruce Mau, Stewart Brand, Hazel Henderson, and John Todd. Supported by Mayor Daley and the Chicago Department of Planning and Development and SAIC’s Betty Rymer Gallery.
