We were impressed when we started getting e-mails from the Halsey Institute about Bluesphere, a city-wide earth art expo. The lineup included green-minded exhibits all over town, from Eye Level Art to City Gallery to Redux to the Gibbes. We were even more impressed when we found out that the project came together rather organically. Many of the galleries involved had been planning green-centric events before they even found out about the expo. Over the course of a few months, we were treated to exhibits that demonstrated the power of sustainability, from Butch Anthony's folk art made from dumpster finds, to J. Henry Fair's aerial photographs of industrial wastelands to Chris Jordan's visual representations of over-consumption.
