The AC Institute is pleased to present Ann-Marie LeQuesne's video Fanfare for Crossing the Road, the first in her five part video series that will be presented at the gallery. Fanfare for Crossing the Road is an international project that adds ceremony to a common event. Ann-Marie LeQuesne asked musicians, who were dressed in uniforms and positioned beside the traffic lights, to mimic the digital acoustic crossing sounds that signal to the blind when to cross.

Membership Campaign, 2013-2014

We are thrilled to collaborate on this year’s membership campaign with Dr. Annie Hauck-Lawson, founder of Brooklyn Mompost; and Mr. Eric Laufer, President and Founder of Laufer Wind Group. Annie is a registered dietitian, whose family practices have been 'green' in Brooklyn for four generations; she is currently the Greening Director at Poly Prep Country Day School. Knowing that garbage going to landfills turns into greenhouse gasses, Annie loves turning that vicious cycle around—and she's not afraid to share the love! Eric holds a degree in Aeronautical and Astronautical Engineering and provides wind energy consultations to ordinary consumers as well as large international energy conglomerates.
