RISD to have presence at DNC in Denver

 "André the Giant has a Posse" sticker on a stop sign.

I'm late in getting to this, but it's still reason for some local pride:

On the basis of RISD’s innovative approach to the challenges of climate change through design, the City of Denver and the Host Committee of the Democratic National Convention have selected the Rhode Island School of Design (RISD) to showcase new ideas and designs during the August nominating Convention.

RISD will present Partly Sunny an exhibition highlighting initiatives, policies and products that have the potential for immediate and significant environmental benefit.

Partly Sunny is part of Dialog:City, Denver’s official Democratic National Convention public program, an event converging art, democracy and digital media, designed to catalyze public discourse. Partly Sunny is one of 10 site-specific interactive public art and design initiatives that foster civic action throughout Denver from August 21-30, 2008 and beyond.

Partly Sunny is a multi-department initiative with over 100 students in six departments working to curate, design and produce the exhibition. The programs and products fall into six categories: transportation, food, buildings, energy, landscape and water.  They range in scale from individual lifestyle choices to national policies that give concrete actions to be taken by average citizens as well as politicians in town for the convention.
