Once a year I teach Design Rebels, a course on socially conscious design that I created for Virginia Commonwealth University’s Graphic Design department. As part of the class the students are required to create a real world group project, based on the themes of the class, that reaches into the community beyond the school. This year the class decided to focus on the issue of local, in-season food. They’ve created an art event called Project Winterfood that will give people in the area a fun way to learn more about what grows in the area in the winter and why it’s important to eat locally grown food. This free event is this Wednesday, December 2nd, from 7-10 in Richmond, Virginia. If you’re in the area I hope you’ll consider stopping by.
