Architecture and Landscape Architecture Library

Closing Event:  Friday, March 8, 2013 4:30pm -7pm

Tanya Gravening makes art that focuses on the problems caused by plastic pollution. Monuments of Trash Art Project (MoTAP) is a series of paintings, sculptures, and functional art objects to raise consciousness of plastic pollution. The creative process of MoTAP includes an opportunity for people to participate in the project by collecting plastic trash, which is then used to construct the art work.

One of the pieces in the exhibit, Plastic Pyramid, will be dismantled and recycled during the closing event.
