Official opening for The Rights of Spring Festival. At the conclusion of the invocation ceremonies. Attendees will proceed to the Campus Pond for Earth! This striking piece of public, activist art will raise awareness about ways to address climate change. Earth! is a transdisciplinary project between Theater technology and Earth Conservation students, who have creatively applied technology, science, and art to technically design and fabricate a 24’ diameter planet earth structure that is also a model of sustainability, as the construction materials are meant to be reused in future projects. Attendees of Invocation + Earth! will also see Atlas (Monuments of the Future).
