EXHIBIT – Earth From Above USA – 2008–2010
A breathtaking collection of large-scale aerial photography by world-renowned French environmentalist, Yann Arthus-Bertrand.
Matter of Trust was a fiscal sponsor for the planning stages of Earth From Above – USA Exhibit and Educational Program in New York. From field trips to experiential lessons to classroom tools, Earth From Above – USA offers turnkey support for K-12, college, and adult curricula.
The American producer of the exhibit, Picture Earth, collaborated with France’s Goodplanet.org to launch a national poster program, adapted for the American market. The exhibit is on permanent display across 50,000 schools in France.
A visual record for future generations, this outdoor public art exhibition presents awe-inspiring portraits of our planet and a new perspective on the need for sustainable living. Free to the public, day and night, experiential, and green by design, the eight-week exhibition featured 150 images from around the globe captioned by sustainable development experts. With an inspiration pavilion, walkable world map, and exhibit for the blind, Earth From Above – USA brings into focus our planet’s fragility to deliver a poignant, hopeful and educational message.
