FUNctional Art on loan
Today I went over to Port Discovery children’s museum to view their FUNctional Art exhibit, which focuses on art made of recycled materials. I’ve loaned quite a few recycled metal art pieces from Haiti for this exhibit, including doves, suns, dragonflies, and crescent moon faces. You can find most of those pieces here. I also put on loan some of my “trashy purses” made from recycled juice packs from the Philippines.
Since it was such a kick seeing the work I carry in such an odd context for me, I thought I’d share some of the photos. Of course, should you be heading to Port Discovery, you can check it out yourself.
Friday Photo: Wall of hearts
So I’ve heard that Valentine’s Day is on Tuesday. And, in honor of the day where we value all things are heart shaped, I bring you a photo of a recycled metal art wall of hearts from my just concluded show at St Paul’s School for Girls.
Ok, it’s not a box of chocolate, but seems to be more than a fair alternative. And, *sigh* these items are not on my website–not even quite yet in my possession, although I understand that they are on the way–and I should have them (fingers duly crossed) very soon.
I’ve blogged before about “people peace” or “peace people” here and here and now present another photo about the process of making metal art out of recycled oil drums in Haiti. This is a fairly early stage: tracing a stencil on recycled flat metal. This peace sign will soon by on theThree Stone Steps‘ site, but let us know if you’d like it sooner.
Write something about yourself. No need to be fancy, just an overview.
