Turn discarded plastics into sculptural objects!
Artist Michelle Lougee draws from the American folk art tradition of memory jugs, made to commemorate the deceased with keepsakes from their lives. She’s adapted this practice to memorialize the wasteful and harmful accumulation of single-use plastics in our culture. Workshop participants will create fetish jugs, transforming mundane plastic items like bottle tops and contact lens packaging into objects of dystopian beauty.
Join us afterwards at 3pm for the opening reception of Our Tangled Choices: Art and the Environment, featuring artwork by Michelle Lougee and Pat Musick in the Wilson Museum!
