Gallery Opening of Life in the Cloud Forest: A Story of Resistance and Renewal

Official Opening:  Monday, 3/17 (4:30-7:30 pm); exhibit begins Saturday, 3/15 and will end on Friday, 3/28.  Where?  Jill Stuart Gallery, Human Ecology Building, Level T

Recently a group of students traveled to Ecuador with a service-learning class through the International Agriculture and Rural Development Department.  This group will be hosting an exhibit entitled LIFE IN THE CLOUD FOREST: A Story of Resistance and Renewal in the Jill Stuart Gallery in the Human Ecology Building, Level T.  The exhibit will be begin March 16th through March 27th with the Official Opening and Reception on March 17th from 4:30pm to 7:30pm.  We thought you would be interested in seeing what work they did in Ecuador, and potentially interest students in taking the class next year.  See below a brief excerpt of their experiences.

Intag is a cloud enshrouded valley in on the western slopes of the Ecuadorian Andes. This exhibit is a story of that place, its people, the threats they have faced, and their struggle to create a more sustainable future. It also the story of a new experiential learning course at Cornell and its 15 students and two faculty members who became allies of Intag and its people. The exhibit explores what it means for academics and students to Engage with a community. The exhibit is dedicated to our friend and teacher Professor Charlotte Jirousek.
