Blue-Renew - art: debris Artist Talk & Food for Thought Discussion
Join artist Michelle Loughery, along with fellow artists Rob Creeleman, and Jennifer Greenwood in a discussion about art and sustainability and how we can play a role in the preservation of our planet by attending Blue Renew-art: debris Artist Talk & Food for Thought Discussion. This Unplug and Play Week activity takes place at the Vernon Museum Saturday May 5th from 1:00pm-2:30pm. Plan to attend this free drop-in family event and add your two cents to the giant “conversation” buoys with felt marker and produce something meaningful out of the recycled ocean debris. For more information please call 250-542-3142, visit www.vernonmuseum.ca or find us on facebook.
The exhibition entitled Blue Renew-art: debris reflects on some of the serious environmental challenges that our planet faces today. Loughery, lead artist of Route Blue Buoy and the Blue Renew Show, has teamed up with a number of local artists to take on the challenge of creating beauty and art from reclaimed ocean buoys obtained from the Ocean Legacy Foundation. These works of art are currently on display at the museum.
