Big Ideas for a Small Planet

"Going green" has almost become a fashion statement in this day and age, but finding the most effective ways to help the environment can often be tricky, and the impact we have on the world around us is often greater than we think. Throughout the summer, the Walker Art Center will present a series of documentaries created by the Sundance Channel that offers green solutions to some of today’s biggest environmental problems. Big Ideas for a Small Planet, which runs June 3 through August 31, is a series of five 30-minute programs that feature the designers, products, and processes that are at the forefront of environmental sustainability.

The first piece in the series, "Fashion and Decorate" begins June 3 and runs through June 22. "Live and Grow" runs June 24 to July 13. "Water" runs July 15 to 20. "Transport and Power" runs July 22 to August 10. The series concludes with "Recycling and Business," which runs August 12 to 31. Every showing is free and can be seen in the Walker Art Center Lecture Room beginning at noon and running through normal gallery hours.
