On Saturday, April 21st, Common Ground High School, Urban Farm, and Environmental Education Center will host a travelling exhibit of photographs from the Environmental Protection Agency. The exhibit — which is visiting Common Ground in conjunction with the Rock to Rock Earth Day Ride (www.rocktorock.org) — contains images “from the two largest photo
documentary efforts of our lives and environment.” New Haven is one of the first stops for this exhibit, which will be touring the nation over the next year.
The photographs will be at Common Ground for just one day, so we hope to see you on the 21st. You can see the photographs by joining us for Rock to Rock, a city-wide cycling celebration and fundraiser for 21 local environmental groups. You can also arrive after the last wave of riders depart at 10:45; Common Ground’s Open Farm Day will continue until 1pm, and the photos will be on display until then.
*Documerica: The State of the Environment* Almost 40 years ago, EPA’s Documerica project captured thousands of images
of environmental problems and everyday life. EPA hired freelance photographers to document the human and environmental conditions when EPAs work was just beginning. Until recently, that entire collection of images had been lost within the National Archives and the original intent of the project had been forgotten. In 2012, highlights from Documerica begin visiting communities across the country as part of a travelling exhibit.
The new travelling exhibit also shows off public submissions from the past year to EPA’s modern version of *Documerica, *called *State of the Environment. *Four decades after *Documerica *came to a close, *State of the Environment *launched a global call for public photos last Earth Day to document the picture/s of our environment today. Within *State of the Environment *is also a public challenge to find Documerica scenes close to them and share photos of that same place today; for better or for worse to visualize the change.
