Invasive Species… The Art of Upcycling
Aug. 2–Oct. 18, 2014
A resurgence in the “ready-made” art practice made popular by Dada artists Duchamp and Man Ray, upcycling makes use of discarded materials and transforms them into beautiful objects without breaking down the material. Invasive Species: The Art of Upcycling will feature upcycle inspired artwork that crosses boundaries between environmentalism and art. Artwork by Michael Dinges, Victoria Fuller, Alan Emerson Hicks, Valerie Mann, Chris Silva, and Bryan Sperry.
Summer 2014 is stocked with art events!Several my sculptures are currently appearing in a group show at the Lubeznik Center for the Arts in Michigan City, Indiana. The exhibition focuses on a “resurgence in the ‘ready-made’ art practice” that “makes use of discarded materials and transforms them into beautiful objects”…an apt description of my object-based artwork!
The Lubeznik Center for the Arts is located at 101 W. Second St., Michigan City, IN.
