DESCRIPTION

Tempe is one of the lucky few to play host to Green Revolution, an eco-friendly, green-themed exhibition that engages visitors by addressing critical environmental issues concerning the local community. This version of Green Revolution is based on an exhibition originally created by the Chicago Museum of Science and Industry and its Black Creativity Council and is made available by the Smithsonian Institution Traveling Exhibition Service, from which TCA has been challenged to create a “Tempe” version. 

Tempe is working with local artists and organizations to create an interactive exhibition that combines the arts and sciences, teaching community members about “going green.” To date, this exhibition has not been brought to the Southwest and has been displayed in zoos, libraries and science centers – making the Gallery at TCA the first arts institution in the nation to offer this Smithsonian project. “Green Revolution” addresses the following themes: carbon footprint, energy, gardening, recycling and hybrid home.
