Be a part of history as Ed Morris, the co-author of Green Patriot Posters, leads a team of designers, thinkers, environmentalists and audience participants in creating America's Most-Wanted Eco-Poster in real time! In designing the poster Morris will also be leading the team through a discussion of environmental and activist imagery, the current state of the environmental movement and the efficacy of art and design. Electronic copies of the resulting image will be freely distributed at the event and on a website afterwards.
