Plastics: Our Weakness

|Recurring Event (See all)
An event every day that begins at 8:00am, repeating until September 2, 2017
Artist-in-Residency exhibition by Arleen Thaler.
We love plastic for its functionality, bend-ability, and durability. Every single day, everywhere around the world people come in contact with plastic. As we consume plastic daily, we discard it equally so. The earth is trimmed like a Christmas tree and lit by the colors of discarded plastic. Like bait we are hooked. Our culture of over-consumption has created a culture of waste. Plastic pollutes the water we drink, the air we breathe, and the very land we live on. Despite the many benefits plastic has to offer, the side effects are inescapable.
Plastics: Our Weakness is Arleen Thaler’s photographic exploration of the plastic that is left to degrade along our roadsides, beaches, and parks. Guest photographers on exhibit include Erica Jae & Jacalyn Meyvis.
