OLAFUR ELIASSON’S LITTLE SUN WILL SHINE AT USDAN THIS SUMMER

For Summer 2017, Usdan Summer Camp for the Arts is adding a sustainable art curriculum designed by Usdan staff in collaboration with noted artist Olafur Eliasson’s Little Sun team.

Launched by artist Olafur Eliasson and engineer Frederik Ottesen in 2012, the Little Sun Project strives to bring clean, affordable solar energy to the 1.1 billion people living without electricity.  With the Little Sun as its foundation, this course studies environmental issues through art by using unconventional materials and experiences. Activities include creating solar lamps, nature walks, sketchbook practice, and a special overnight at Usdan to experience what it's like to live with limited light.

“Olafur Eliasson’s Little Sun team are leaders in integrating sustainable arts within education programs,” says Lauren Brandt Schloss, Usdan’s Executive Director. “We’re so pleased to be partnering on this exciting new program and to see what they are able to create with the students on campus this summer.”
