Social sculptor Susan Leibovitz Steinman creates large scale (mostly temporary) street-front green installations with multiple stakeholder participation. Working globally, she designs each project to address specific site concerns and stated local needs. These DIY pop-ups model low cost, easy-to-copy ecological techniques and social strategies. Politically they address public land for public use, food rights and social justice, natural asset conservation, bioremediation, community revitalization, and even green tourism to generate sustainable economies.
