A NEW HAVEN ACTIVIST GROUP IS FORMING.
In partnership with
The New Haven
Parks & Recreation
Art supplies donated by
Artist & Craftsman Supplies
New Haven, CT
I am forming a group of local artists interested in cleaning up the garbage all around us, and producing art inspired by the sites we clean. Together, artists will target parks and waterfront locations where litter is abundant, clean up for an hour, then spread out some blankets to sketch, ink, paint, photograph, etc., the transformed places we find ourselves in. The project will receive promotion in New Haven Independent and the art work produced will have a spot as well. I am partnered with The New Haven Dept of Parks & Recreation for guidance, gear, and locations in need of cleanup. Art supplies have been kindly donated by Artist & Craftsman Supplies.
I love New Haven - it offers so much in the way of natural environment with its woods and waterfronts so easily accessible. It makes me wince when I see trash in the way. I want to get it out, clean it up, raise awareness by way of good example and by posting Ecocide art in the target areas. Another goal is to strengthen the community by bringing local artists together who share a mutual concern for these issues and want to make a difference.
