Green Suits Your City

CU Art Museum Exhibit


Participatory Photography Project Exhibited at CU Art Museum Fall 2017

Opening Reception at CU Art Museum
Thursday, September 7, 5:00-7:00 PM

Green Suits Your City will be on display from August 17- October 28, 2017

Green Suits Your City is a participatory photography project by Inside the Greenhouse that infuses embodied creativity into the greening of our cities. It is a collection of photographs from cities around the world by over fifty different photographers of people in full green suits in nearly every pose imaginable. As part of this exhibit, visitors are invited to check out a green suit with a leafy sash and submit a photograph of themselves or a friend in some iconic place in their city. This interactive project is designed to engage the participation of a wider constituency in the greening of our cities. Placing actual bodies in service of this vision marks the commitment to joyful acts that will inspire action on behalf of environmental resilience. Sometimes it takes a literal representation of an idea to make it real. Both the process of taking the photos and the photographs themselves spark conversation, and are a part of an ongoing effort to infuse embodied fun and broad engagement in resilience planning.

This project was inspired by the Rockefeller Foundations 100 Resilient Cities Initiative of which Boulder is a part (www.100resilientcities.org), helping cities around the world become more resilient to the physical, social, and economic challenges that are a growing part of the 21st century.
