Jeanne Leimkuhler | TEDxBloomington
Does engaging in creative reuse projects activate problem-solving in the brain that could lead to new ways to deal with major environmental problems? At TEDxBloomington, Jeanne Leimkuhler explores this theory in her talk focusing on Creative Reuse. Leimkuhler is the founder of the Trashion Refashion Show, a benefit for the Center for Sustainable Living, and a co-founder of Discardia, a non-profit group that educates the public on how to make items from recycled materials. She is also a steering committee member for the Southern Indiana Renewable Energy Network (SIREN) and a board member of the Center for Sustainable Living. Pursuing both creative and mechanical interests, Leimkuhler received a B.F.A. in Graphic Design from Kent State University and an M.A. in Visual Communications Design from Purdue University. She currently is an Art Preparator at the Indiana University Art Museum, where she also leads their green team.
