Just as artist El Anatsui uses discarded materials found in abundance in his community, the Bass Museum of art conducted art projects through the community from April through July using recycled paper. Participants were asked to write personal messages of peace and inspiration and then the papers were linked together to construct "Monumental Paper Chain."
The final project was unveiled on July 27 at the Bass' IDEA@thebass Family Day, a free afternoon of ACTIVITY and art exploration. "This project was designed as a platform to inspire various communities to make a real connection with each other, while at the same time breathing new life into recycled materials, and creating art that connects each of us," said Executive Director Silvia Karman Cubina.
