Last night, the Hartford Art School design department hosted a lecture by graphic designer, University of Illinois assistant professor, and founder of the “green” graphic design resource site renourish, Eric Benson. The presentation was interesting and thought-provoking, as is the site renourish. I encourage everyone, not just graphic designers, to visit and look around.
And while I’m on the subject of linking, and since Mr. Benson put the idea in my head, below are links to the websites of the artists and artist groups that make up Beyond Green. Learn more about the artists, their projects, and how you can help out and go Beyond Green.
