Paradise Lost and Recycled

Bird sculptures made from recycled materials by environmental artist Bryant Holsenbeck will set the stage for her BCCC residency. With the assistance of students and community members, she will create a 20-foot waterfall made from up to 10,000 plastic water bottles in the Gallery from February 2-6. Holsenbeck sees her installations as both meditations and questions focusing on our environment and our culture.
Students, faculty, staff, school groups (grades 6-12) and community members are invited to participate in the project by collecting water bottles and/or working with the artist during her residency. To learn more, visit www.bucks.edu/waterfall or contact Fran Orlando, Director of Exhibitions at Fran.Orlando@bucks.edu or 215-968-8432.
