KEYNOTE SPEAKER - DAN BORELLI, DIRECTOR OF EXHIBITIONS
HARVARD GRADUATE SCHOOL OF DESIGN

Borelli is a 2012 graduate of the inaugural class of Master in Design Studies (MDes) program in Art, Design, and the Public Domain and has served as Director of Exhibition since 2000. Borelli has collaborated with students on student-designed projects including a DesignMiami/ pavilion and the “WE ALL” installation in Allston. Outside the school, he is deeply involved in an art-based research inquiry into an EPA Superfund Site in his hometown of Ashland, Massachusetts. Learn more about his work here.




Our lakes, rivers, streams and ponds sustain us, but they face daunting challenges from the ways we have shaped our communities and the land. How can artists and scientists partner to communicate the value of water protection and restoration projects? Share your ideas for art and science collaboration, learn about new strategies, and explore partnerships that engage Vermonters to understand, care, and act.
