Garbagia Three Green Suns – Summer Program
August 28, 2018 @ 4:00 pm - September 15, 2018 @ 9:00 pm
Loisaida is proud to bring our community an ongoing summer program highlighting and revitalizing the migrant experience, our neighborhood’s historical inventiveness, and ecological resilience. Inspired by local artist and activist, Rolando Politi, whose iconic repurposed and recycled sculptures pepper community gardens throughout Loisaida, the program uses place-based pedagogy and recycled materials to equip youth and residents in using creative strategies to address the city’s urgent issues.
Join Garbagia’s third year open atelier summer program for collaborative and individual projects in textiles, gleaning, sculpture and painting Join the program to transform garbage into beautiful art, then showcase your work with a final community celebration at the historical La Plaza Cultural community Garden!
