This blog is for an on-going conversation about art and sustainability, as prompted by the series of art shows curated by Becky Brooks for Sightline Institute’s downtown Seattle office.
Sightline Institute, Cascadia’s sustainability think tank, is an important organization to the Northwest region and beyond as they research and communicate trends that are crucial to the region’s future: health, economy, population, energy, sprawl, wildlife, and pollution. They provide the research and tools needed to make progress on a range of solutions to these issues. The now familiar term “green-collar jobs” was coined at Sightline. Nonpartisan and wholly independent, Sightline’s only ideology is commitment to the shared values of community, fairness, responsibility, and opportunity.
Visit the office between 10am and 3pm on weekdays. All shows are located at:
1402 Third Ave,
Fifth Floor, Suite 500
206-447-1880 ext. 100
