Wendy Popp Launches 350.org Climate Change Illustration Project
Illustration faculty member Wendy Popp has received a grant to coordinate an external project on Climate Change. The Illustration program will be collaborating with 350.org, the international environmental organization on visual interpretations that go beyond the scope of the polar bear and melting ice flow.
All faculty members are invited to incorporate this project into their syllabus for the spring semester.
All students are invited to develop ideas in any manner of interpretation from GIF to storyboard, comic to puppetry, animation to static image, poetry to musical interlude.
The first meeting and presentation with 350.org will be on Wednesday, January 25th in room D 1103 in 6 east 16th from 4:45 – 5:30pm.
The work that is generated will be presented in exhibition during Earth week and during a presentation for The Tishman Environmental Design Center in late April.
It is our hope that the quantity and quality of the work that is generated will further the enhancement of the 350.org social media campaign.
The project is open to all departments of Parsons The New School for Design.
