Art, Environment, Action!

Fri, Sep 28 '12 - Sat, Dec 15 '12
New York, NY, US

The Sheila C. Johnson Design Center (SJDC) at Parsons The New School for Design presents Art, Environment, Action! Over its nearly four-month run, this creative laboratory will bring together a diverse cross-section of artists, designers, architects, dancers, chefs, and scientists, working at the intersections of art, pedagogy, and ecology. Designed as a “toy box” of possibilities, the gallery will be continually transformed through dynamic programs that will rely on public participation. Visitors are invited to sign up for workshops, off-site explorations, walks, dialogues, and other interactive exchanges led by the artists, encouraging their active engagement as makers and thinkers. Artifacts of these exchanges will seed subsequent dialogue and interaction in the gallery.

For the opening reception on September 27, artist and activist Tattfoo Tan will lead a workshop on raising urban chickens, from 6:30 to 8:30 pm. For more information on this, and to sign up for other workshops and events, visit the Sheila C. Johnson Design Center website.
