Imagining Energy Transitions

Jack Elliot's 2016 'Animus' on the Ag Quad

With joint funding from Cornell's Einaudi Center for International Studies, this project will seed a truly multidisciplinary approach to renewable energy at Cornell. Through the Energy Transitions Collaboratory, scientists and engineers, humanists, social scientists, and artists will work together to engage the public with effective stories and new visual approaches to sustainable energy solutions we can all share. One part of the initiative will disseminate public art on hot-button renewable energy issues to shape public opinion and reach thought leaders.
