CARE. not convenience. | In-Person and Online Exhibition
Art Show

Jae Won Lee & Kelly Salchow MacArthur | August 24 - November 20 | HUB Gallery & Online | Plastic. It is convenient and pervasive, lifesaving and the root of suffering. It is so ingrained in our lives it is hard to imagine a world without it. This imagining lies at the heart of the exhibition CARE. not convenience. Created entirely with salvaged plastic, this collaboration between an artist, designer, and an environmental sciences researcher aspired to shed light on society’s dependence and careless overuse, as well as, thoughtless disposal of plastic. The primary material used for work creation was found and collected plastic bags. The extensive exploration of this petroleum-based material has led to methods of fusing sheets of plastic with heat, and making art forms with functional design capabilities (such as wearable art and hanging space dividers) and attention to minimizing waste in processes of production. Text written and selected by Lissy Goralnik. This exhibition was selected by a jury of Penn State faculty, staff, and students. HUB Gallery is open everyday from 10:00 am - 6:00 pm.
