Sacrifice + Bliss: Artist Aurora Robson uses cast-off plastic, excess packaging and junk mail to create transformative works of art with a message. READ MORE



When I drove to Columbus,Ohio to check out the Franklin Park Conservatory my motivation was to spend  QUALITY TIME someplace warm/green and get out of the snow for awhile. Little did I know how much I would enjoy the art of Aurora Robson. ENJOY….

“Robson uses everyday waste such as discarded plastic bottles and junk mail to create intricate sculptures, installations, and collages. Over the years, Robson has intercepted tens of thousands of bottles, saving them from their ultimate destination at the landfill or costly recycling plants.” READ MORE

I think there are some “artistic” shadows here,so I may link to Shadow Shot Sunday 2 





Robson’s Website, Pinned to Pinterest, Google Images ….I hope all the above is Aurora Robson’s work because The Chihuly Collection is at the Conservatory and well worth seeing. Chihuly’s artwork was first seen at the Conservatory in 2003 and shortly after, The Friends of the Conservatory, a private nonprofit group, purchased most of the pieces in that exhibition as a permanent collection for the Conservatory.
