How can the politics of gentrification not only initiate economic growth, but also reinvent public spaces? Students in instructor Jaclyn Meloche’s class “Green Corridor” explore that question in seven installations on exhibition this week in the gallery in the SoCA Armouries.
In the context of their mandate to re-imagine public space through discourses of community engagement, green development, and sustainability, students in the project-based course consider interdisciplinary methods for community building.
Works in the exhibition, titled Urban Interruptions, are on display through Friday, negotiating the stakes for people impacted by urban revitalization in west Windsor’s historical Sandwich Towne district. Find more information, including a full list of participating artists, on the event website.
