Opening Reception:
Friday, May 18, from 6 to 8 p.m.

The Plastiquarium is immersed in mystery. Modern myth suggests that a century of increasing phosphate levels in Earth’s marine environment caused new, synthetic life forms to emerge. As recyclable HDPE plastic containers spread concentrates of consumer product pollutants, the Plastiquarium creatures evolved in the image of their packaging forbearers.

Edgar fashions decorative artworks from recyclable detergent bottles, creating the marine creatures of the Plastiquarium.



Reception: May 18, 6 to 8 p.m.
