Many MFTA recipients will remember the massive donations of American Eagle costume jewelery available at the warehouse earlier this year. Sabu, an artist and dedicated MFTA volunteer, scraped up the last broken bits of that donation for his intimate combine, Abe (above). Another transitional work by Sabu, this work is on view for WasteDiversions at MFTA Gallery through October 4, 2012.
Sabu’s series of paper sculpture was created entirely with leftovers from school group visits at MFTA. It is inspiring how few cuts are necessary for Sabu to create monstrous, but miniature, sculpture from these scraps. See his entire series of paper sculpture during WasteDiversions at MFTA Gallery through October 4, 2012.
Please join us at MFTA for the opening reception Thursday, March 29, 6-9 pm, featuring a performance by Ian M. Colletti of Vaudeville Park.
This reception is free and open to the public. Guests may RSVP here.
WasteDiversions: Sculpture and Collage from New York’s Waste Stream, an exhibition of new work by artists from MFTA recipients Culture Push and Vaudeville Park, as well as participants in Friends of MFTA’s open studio program, is on view at MFTA Gallery from March 29 to October 4, 2012.
