Plastique brings to light the wonderful horrible nature of plastic. It is resilient and it lasts. That’s the beauty and the destructive nature of plastic particularly single use plastic such as plastic bags . Plastique, a multi-disciplinary project with community outreach components will create high quality art form plastic to engage our community and increase awareness around this vital environmental issue of plastic, its use, misuse and lasting impact. Performance and installation comprise the project. Installation pieces will be made by community members from schools and community organizations during the outreach projects.
Plastique exhibit runs from April 7 to May 3 2014 at the Urban Arts Gallery
