Grants use art to teach about environmental issues
By Amber Scott
The tangled mass of construction netting, batteries, reflectors, Ken dolls, twisty straws and worthless motherboards sits, somewhat appropriately, atop overturned garbage cans. All this debris is spackled onto life-size dolls and re-imagined rocking horses thanks to epoxy, spray paint, nails and good luck.
It’s quite literally a hunk of junk, but ultimately the work in Bob Morgan’s All that Glitters evolves into a stunning army of environment-saving soldiers on a mission.
