Wednesday, October 22nd, 6-9 pm Come to discover the wonderful world of environmental/recycled art! From Andy Goldsworthy to the Dumpster Divers, Environmental Art finds many forms. Participants will learn about the vast array of art being done in this genre and create their own temporary art. They will also create a recycled sculpture to take home as a momento!
WHAT IS ENVIRONMENTAL ART?
In a general sense, it is art that helps improve our relationship with the natural world. There is no definition set in stone. This living worldwide movement is growing and changing as you read this. Much environmental art is ephemeral (made to disappear or transform), designed for a particular place (and can't be moved) or involves collaborations between artists and others, such as scientists, educators or community groups (distributed ownership).
