Join Raíces Cultural Center on October 15th for the opening of a solo exhibit by NJ artist Lisa Bagwell. The Eco-Art Exhibit will feature sculptures made entirely of post-consumer recycled materials. Selected artwork will remain on display through November. Hope to see you there!
What: Eco-Art Exhibit Opening Reception and Artist Talk
When: October 15, 2016
*Artist Talk with Q & A session will begin at 6pm.
Where: Ruthie’s Bagel Dish, 68-70 Raritan Ave. (Rt 27), Highland Park, NJ
Why: This exhibit uses the field of visual arts to address the growing problem of waste and over-consumption within our world and asks the audience to reflect on their role in it. We seek to inspire attendees to reflect on the way our cultures have evolved into “throw away societies”, as well as, explore their roles in helping to create a more sustainable culture for the future. Through this exhibit, Raíces Cultural Center’s EcoCulture program hopes to create more cross-cultural understanding and dialogue within the community, as a common ground of sustainability and preservation for all cultures.
More info: The exhibit is accessible, free and open to all members of the community. Light refreshments will be served. Tea, coffee and juices will be available for purchase from Ruthie’s. An online exhibit of this art show will be available on the Raíces Digital Archive starting in November 2016.
This program is made possible in part by funds from the Middlesex County Board of Chosen Freeholders and Office of Culture and Heritage through a grant from the New Jersey State Council on the Arts.
