Upcoming Events At This Venue

February 6, 2014

Can we meet our country’s growing agricultural demands in a way that honors our earth? The David Brower Center explores the language of resilience in our winter 2014 exhibit, a multi-platform project featuring the work of Douglas Gayeton that uses photography, film, ethnography, and crowdsourcing techniques to uncover the terms and principles that characterize “sustainability,” a popular term with a sometimes slippery definition. At a time when our country’s commercial agriculture operation is causing major environmental degradation by polluting our waterways, contributing to deforestation, or poisoning wildlife with pesticides, a sustainable sea change in the industry is called for. This important exhibit sheds light on changemakers across the country who are reshaping our food culture and working to develop a healthier, safer, and more sustainable system nationwide.

Gallery hours:

Monday – Friday: 9am – 5pm
