something in the water

Eco-Art project: Something in the Water

Crochet with plastic bags?! Learn how and participate in an eco-art project using plastic bags to crochet breast shapes that will be joined together and exhibited in an art exhibition about water in May 2011 at the American Jewish Museum in Pittsburgh, PA.

Plastics are significant culprits contributing to the toxins in our water that we pass on to infants through mothers’ milk. Highlighting this dark side of our dependency on plastic bags, concerned people are crocheting breast shapes from plastic bags. Everyone who contributes will be acknowledged as collaborators with Wendy Osher, lead artist on the project. All crocheted breast shaped must be received by April 1, 2011.
