Wenda Gu's two-part project entitled united nations: the green house and united nations: united colors opened to an enthusiastic public audience on June 6 in Dartmouth College's Baker-Berry Library.

The green house, created for Dartmouth, is a site-specific hair screen that divides the length of Dartmouth's Baker Library main hall. The work is made from human hair clippings collected from thousands of Dartmouth students, faculty, and staff and residents of the Upper Valley. President James Wright and Provost Barry Scherr addressed the crowd with thoughts on the importance of art in unexpected places and its role in higher education.
