Exhibition Partnership/Collaborative opportunities: To cross promote departments, programs, institutes, projects, etc.: If your department, program or organization would be interested in co-sponsoring the exhibit and programming, a modest amount would help us do this. Sponsors help us fund the exhibition design, printing and installation, events (opening reception, speaker events, panel discussions), publicity (postcard), travel (exhibit will travel through West Virginia) and programming. Sponsors are recognized in highly visible ways. Special poster printing and distribution: A poster with a visually interesting infographic to include logos of all supporters will be distributed regionally to all supporters, contributors, artists, food justice interest groups, and many local restaurants. For more information see our outline of sponsorship levels here or contact Paula Martinelli, email@example.com.
