The Art of Sustainability initiative recognizes the interdisciplinary nature of re-imagining and achieving ecological balance using art to disrupt silos. The initiative hopes to inspire collaborative, co-creations that bridge art, science and technology and add richness to the global discourse on sustainability. This year's themes invited artistic expressions around Climate Change, Climate Justice and Community Resilience. Three-dimensional creations also explored innovative use of recycled materials to make "Tinker Toys & Robots" from aluminum cans, "Chandeliers" from plastic bottles and "Fashion Swag" wearables from cardboard and paper. This first ever exhibition is not only a celebration of art, but it also provides a glimpse into the world of possibilities when we approach the toughest global challenges creatively. 

Congratulations to the more than one hundred student, faculty, staff and community participants contributing to this inaugural year exhibition!
