The acclaimed Palo Alto Art Center will continue its thought-provoking and community-engaging series of site-specific environmental installations exploring art in public and community spaces with Bay Area artist Judith Selby Lang's Water Lilies. The site-specific work--comprising large-scale floating structures made of plastic bottles calling attention to issues of water pollution, recycling, reuse and environmental sustainability--is scheduled to open on April 9 in time for a celebration on Earth Day, Sunday, April 22, at the Baylands Nature Preserve, 2775 Embarcadero Road, Palo Alto, CA. The temporary site-specific installation will remain in place until September 2012.
Lang's work, including her most recent installation for Palo Alto Art Center--LawnBowls, which is on view at the Palo Alto Lawn Bowling Club through February 2013-is widely celebrated for its environmental message and its creative reuse of materials viewed by many as "trash."
There will be a free public opening reception for Water Lilies including hands-on family day art activities with recyclables, visiting animals and hands-on activities by the Junior Museum & Zoo, park ranger led canoe outings to clean up the marshlands, tours of the Water Quality Control Plant, an artist's talk, information tables about community service and environmental activism from local community partners, and more on Earth Day, Sunday, April 22, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. For information, visit http://www.cityofpaloalto.org/artcenter.
