Gravity Schmavity: Repurposed Plastic Sculpture by Aurora Robson

Gravity Schmavity: Repurposed Plastic Sculpture by Aurora Robson

Green/Environmental, For the Family
The Arboretum and the Palmer Museum of Art have commissioned artist Aurora Robson to create three outdoor sculptures from Penn State’s industrial plastic waste. By refashioning discarded materials into delicate sculptures, Robson confronts viewers with the long-lasting impacts of plastic. Gravity Schmavity: Repurposed Plastic Sculpture will open to the public on Saturday, June 2. The three pieces will be installed at the Overlook Pavilion of the H.O. Smith Botanic Gardens, in the Glass House in Childhood’s Gate Children’s Garden, and in the Poplar Court. Free guided tours will be offered at 11:00 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. Children’s and family activities will be available throughout the gardens from 11:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m.
