Image: Turning Point: Landscape with Utility Pole, by Candice Eisenfeld
Green and Gray
Oct 2, 2015 - Jan 2, 2016
This exhibition is about the world between the natural landscape and the built environment. People often associate the color green with life and the color gray with coldness. But that isn’t always the case, not all that is green is natural and not all that is gray is man-made. Each artist in this exhibition explores subjects and imagery that show where these elements of the natural and built environment merge, converge and/or conflict. Artists include: Carol Alleman, Susan Beiner, Peter Bugg, Christine Cassano, Angela Cazel-Jahn, Candace Eisenfeld, Steve Gompf, Preston Graves, Jonathan Howard, Mohammed Reza Javaheri, Karen Jilly, Catherine Nash and Ellen Wagener.

“Tomorrow’s cities: Infrastructure to enhance urban sustainability”
Infrastructure is typically defined as the physical pieces of urban systems that provide the services that enable, sustain, or enhance living conditions. Most people think of “hard” infrastructure when they think of these parts of our cities: roads, bridges, buildings, power and telephone lines, and so on. But many forms of urban infrastructure are “softer”; we refer to them this way because they take advantage of natural processes to enable, sustain, or enhance urban living. I will distinguish between “hard” and “soft” urban infrastructure and demonstrate examples of how we can design cities to use nature in “safe to fail” ways in place of more traditional, engineered “fail-safe” types of infrastructure.
