Mixed Media Installation

Sponsored by Rich Sneary.
Jessica Wang is a Lansing based artist, environmental activist and student, studying computer graphics and animation. As an artist, her focus is to work within the community. The social engagement element of this installation and public art program is what inspired this site specific work.
Jessica says “The Grand River is one of the most well-known rivers in this community. One of the structures that contribute to sustaining the marine life in this river, is the Brenke fish ladder. Plastics are one of the most mismanaged and potent materials for our environment. With this installation, I am hoping the work will provide a sense of awareness for maintaining trash and what is considered recyclable.”
