Inside the Greenhouse Exhibit Ready for official SEEC Opening Celebration

April 14th at 4:00 PM
4001 Discovery Drive, Boulder

The artistic contributions by young women towards our city's resilience are on display in the lobby of CU's new Sustainability, Energy and Environment Complex (SEEC). Included are kites representing resilience, capes to represent the rising phoenix, a video installation of young women's voices, and whimsical graphic art of civic statues by young women. This is an exhibit to ensure that the contributions of young women towards resilience are included in our city's plans. It highlights young women's artistic expressions in a place of positive social power for their contributions to be experienced by leading climate scientists and visitors to SEEC. This project is in collaboration with the Rockefeller Foundation's 100 Resilient Cities Initiative of which Boulder is a part. Organizers of this project are Juliana Forbes of MUES Art Studio in Boulder, Beth Osnes co-founder of Inside the Greenhouse, and Rebekah Anderson photographer and videographer (from left to right in photo). This project is an example of participatory creative climate communication through Inside the Greenhouse - an initiative at CU re-telling climate change stories.
