We had a great day on Staten Island! Thank you to both the Council on Arts & Humanities for Staten Island and Freshkills Park. It was a pleasure to meet so many of the creative teams who submitted to this years LAGI ideas competition for Freshkills Park. We can’t wait to meet more teams at upcoming fall events.

In early September we will be posting all of the submissions from this year on our website. Be sure to check back then to see the tremendous proposed examples of public artworks that could also function as utility-scale clean energy.


We were delighted to see Jody Joyner who had worked with LAGI in Dubai 2 years ago. She was with us when LAGI 2012 was in its very early stages of development. Thank you Jody!

10am – 5pm
Free and open to the public

Please join the Land Art Generator Initiative for a day on Staten Island and a sneak preview of submissions to the 2012 LAGI NYC design competition for Freshkills Park. You’ll learn all about renewable energy technologies, land art and public art, and even design your own energy-generating public artwork!

We will be providing free copies of A Field Guide to Renewable Energy Technologies, a 67 page book that details all of the different methods by which clean energy can be safely harnessed from nature. Renewable energy is so much more than just solar panels and wind turbines. We’ll discover how sustainable infrastructure can be beautiful!

Special thanks to the Council on the Arts and Humanities for Staten Island who have helped make this event possible. Funding for the event comes from the Horne Family Foundation and the National Endowment for the Arts.
