Sustainability and the Built Environment of the St. Louis Region is an all-encompassing, all-media exhibition exploring where we stand, as a culture of consumption, and where we may be headed in the future.  It is part of the Artists’ Guild Aggregate Exhibit Series, a group of six exhibitions in which artists, architects, and designers examine our culture of consumption and possible solutions for establishing long-term ecological balance.

Several different approaches to the themes of consumption, conservation, and sustainable living will be included in this exhibition, including Visual Art, Architecture and Design and Community Projects.

This exhibition is juried by Chris Jordan.

“Sustainability 2011 Award” Will Honor Three Artists

The “Sustainability 2011 Award,” conceived by USGBC-Missouri Gateway for this premier exhibition, recognizes architecture as art and artists as champions of sustainability. Three participating artists will be honored with the “Sustainability 2011 Award,” based on their expression of sustainability in the following categories:

  • Sustainable Sites
  • Water Efficiency
  • Energy & Atmosphere
  • Materials & Resources
  • Indoor Environmental Quality
  • Innovation & Design
  • Regional Priority
  • Awareness & Education

These award criteria have been adapted from the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) green building certification system developed in 2000 by the U.S. Green Building Council.

The “Sustainability 2011 Award” is not a commentary on the artistic or purely aesthetic value of the artwork. The focus, instead, is on the artwork as an expression of sustainability efforts and opportunities.
