Feeding Cities is a juried exhibition that will feature journalistic and artistic photos from the Penn community. It will showcase images that illuminate the complex systems of food production, distribution, consumption and nutrition in the face of rapid urban population growth and climate change. The exhibition is the visual companion to Penn’s international Feeding Cities: Food Security in a Rapidly Urbanizing World, which will be held on campus March 13-15, 2013. The exhibition will be open to the public and conference attendees, and will be held in the Morgan Fine Arts Building on the Penn Campus. In addition, the exhibition materials will be made available in an online gallery.
Deadline for submissions is October 1, 2012, and selected works will be announced on November 19, 2012.
