An Evening with Aurora Robson – The Tide Is High: Where Art and Action Collide
The South Carolina Aquarium in Charleston presents a Holland Lifelong Learning Presentation with artist Aurora Robson October 23 from 6:30 – 8:30 in the Great Hall. Can one man’s trash be another’s treasure? Robson focuses on intercepting the waste stream and changing the conversation around plastic pollution. With an estimated 5.25 trillion pieces of plastic in our oceans today, Robson demonstrates how to reuse plastic in sculpture form with Wave, a breathtaking “ring of fire” made from recovered Tide detergent bottles. This session is presented in conjunction with her exhibition at the Halsey Institute of Contemporary Art. To learn more or buy tickets, visit scaquarium.org/lifelonglearning. $10; free for students.
