Environmental challenges are continually increasing. Ecological awareness is the foundation of environmental action and proactive stewardship. Artist and designer David Buckley Borden’s creative use of the “proposal” provokes us to imagine a variety of environmental futures and urges us to do more for the planet in "Proposed Futures: Then and Now." Informed by ecological research and community engagement, Borden explores a collaborative approach to environmental education through accessible art and design, ranging from speculative design proposals to installations in both the gallery and the landscape. Urbano Project is hosting "David Buckley Borden | Proposed Futures: Then and Now," an exhibition exploring how art and design can foster cultural cohesion around environmental issues and help inform ecology-minded decision-making, March 30 – May 17, 2018.
