The 2023 Midwest Regional Sustainability Summit
will Feature an Expanded Art Exhibition!

We're thrilled that in addition to 80+ speakers, this year's conference will include an expanded art show featuring dozens of local artists. The exhibition is curated by local artists Devan Horton and Sarah Richard and will feature a variety of paintings, sculptures, sustainable fashion, and interactive, participatory art installations - including a virtual reality space where attendees can visualize potential on-road bicycle infrastructure transformations in Northern Kentucky! 


“With such an action-packed day and so much information to take in, I believe the artwork will help attendees process all that information and keep them inspired as they move throughout the day.” - Devan Horton

“Art can be a transformative tool for community organizing around the climate crisis. To go beyond seeing this work as just a problem to what positive possibilities there are when we come together is an inspiring opportunity.” - Sarah Richard
