CLEVELAND: Sarah Rich, editor of Dwell: At Home in the Modern World magazine, will give a talk on innovative and sustainable inventions in design, architecture, art, food and urbanism. Sponsored by the Baker-Nord Center for the Humanities and The Cleveland Institute of Art, this free, public talk begins at 6pm on Thursday, November 19, in The Cleveland Institute of Art's Aitken Auditorium (Gund Building, 11141 East Blvd.). Reception will follow in the lobby outside the gallery.

Before joining Dwell, Rich was managing editor of Worldchanging, a sustainable solutions site covering tools, models and ideas for building a better future. She co-authored the bestselling book Worldchanging: A User's Guide for the 21st Century (Abrams 2006). This 600-page compendium to the blog contains innovative solutions, ideas and inventions to enhance costumer consciousness, promote effective philanthropy and create a new vision for a sustainable, "bright, green, free and tough" future.

Rich was also the managing editor of the green design and architecture site, Inhabitat.com. In addition, she launched and edited the Slow Food Nation blog leading up to the inaugural 2008 event in San Francisco. Rich then co-founded the site that emerged from that event, CivilEats.com, which promotes sustainable agriculture and fosters dialogue among leaders, citizens, and chefs about the American food system. Her articles have appeared in BusinessWeek, ReadyMade, Creative Review, and Urban Design Review, among many others.

Now at Dwell, Sarah is on the look out for new and sustainable visions for trade and technology, architectural and interior design, urban living, and clothing. Dwell also has a special section on food tips, food services and the very best, sustainable kitchen gadgets. This award-winning, beautifully designed national publication gives an inspiring look at the creative ways in which design can intersect with environmental sustainability and social responsibility.

This event is held in conjunction with the exhibition 17 Swedish Designersat CIA's Reinberger Galleries and is part of the Baker-Nord Center's programs on the Center's annual theme, "Cultures of Green: Nature and Environment." The exhibition, which features 17 female Swedish design professionals, opens on November 6 and runs through December 19.

For more information, please visit the Baker-Nord events page and CIA's press room. Registration for the event is not required but recommended due to limited seating.
