EXHIBIT RECEPTION | Material World: Design for a Healthful and Equitable Future
Wednesday, November 1, 2023 3-5pm
Gant Science Complex Light Court
The design industry is responsible for excessive amounts of waste… But what if there was an alternative?
The Connecticut State Museum of Natural History invites you to join UConn undergraduate student and designer Cameron Slocum in considering this question at an upcoming reception for her exhibit Material World: Design for a Healthful and Equitable Future.
Each component used in Material World was selected after careful research regarding total life cycle and holistic sustainable properties. Material samples—intended to be touched—provide an opportunity for visitors to learn about the diverse qualities of these sustainable materials. During the reception, Cameron will give brief remarks about the design process for Material World.
The event is free and open to the public, but an RSVP is appreciated as refreshments will be served.
If you require an accommodation to participate in this event, please contact the CSMNH at 860-486-4460 or CSMNHinfo@uconn.edu by Monday, October 30, 2023.
