Full Circle: Back to our roots, upcycled art exhibition

Collage from the Full Circle art exhibit

The exhibition was organized and curated by members of the Cornell College of Human Ecology’s Green Ambassadors: Madjabi Castrejon, Katarina Goodge and Karen Steffy. 

The Green Ambassadors puts out a call for art to Cornell students, faculty and staff, as well as to the local community for the annual upcycle/recycle exhibit early in the early spring 2020.

They received a wonderful, eclectic mix of pieces that interpret each designer’s interpretation of Full Circle: Back to our Roots.

The exhibit was scheduled to open on March 18th.  With Cornell closing on March 22 due to COVID-19, the team rushed to install the exhibit, anyway.  It remains in the Jill Stuart Gallery, giving some sense of normalcy to those essential workers in the Human Ecology Building.
