Green Patriot Poster Project Traveling Exhibit

Above is my contribution to the Green Patriot Poster Project and will be included in an traveling exhibit to first appear in New York. The Canary Project's press release can be seen below.

Green Patriot Posters (The Book)
Published by Metropolis Books
a collection of 50 posters by renown graphic designers promoting sustainability

This is the first exhibition dedicated solely to the highly acclaimed multi-media design campaign, Green Patriot Posters, that will bring together more than 100 of the best contemporary poster designs promoting sustainability with a series of events, workshops and screenings.

The exhibition is produced by The Canary Project, an arts collaborative that addresses climate change and the need for a new economy. Posters from the campaign have been included in bus ads, billboards, magazines, a book (Green Patriot Posters published by Metropolis Books) and museum exhibitions. So far, the campaign has reached 4-5 million people.
