Earth Institute Photography Exhibit Opens at Low Memorial Library

To celebrate 20 years of Columbia University’s Earth Institute, we asked faculty, staff and students to submit photographs depicting their work. With an overwhelming response from individuals from across our centers and programs, we created a 2017 wall calendar and have curated an exhibit in the Rotunda at Columbia University’s Low Memorial Library. This exhibit highlights the variety and global reach of the Earth Institute’s mission, and will run through summer 2017.

A sampling of the exhibit photos may be viewed in the slideshow above. Please join us to view the exhibit in person on March 29 at a panel discussion and reception hosted by Earth Institute Executive Director Steven Cohen, Transforming Organizations with Sustainability Management.

I was just wondering exactly how long this exhibit runs. You say “will run through summer 2017” — does that mean until around Labor Day? Do you have an exact date?
