Joan Green interviewed on Channel 8 – 4-18-18
Green Art Labs’ Joan Green was recently interviewed on San Diego news station Channel 8 about upcoming Art Show The Last Straw: Making Trash Visible, in conjunction with Expressive Arts SD. The Show features artworks made from plastics that share the common theme of ocean to bring awareness to the plastic ocean pollution problem, a deep-seated cause and call-to-action to Joan.
Green Art Labs classes emphasize the need to repurpose items in a fun way, using all collected, re-used materials for the building blocks and inspiration of the art made by both children and adults.
The interview was a great opportunity to both highlight the ocean pollution problem and invite the public to the upcoming art event opening, which includes unique artwork made of ocean plastic, a screening of the documentary movie Straws: A Documentary for a Sea of Change, local food and drink, and environmental action info. Show opens Friday, April 20, 6-9 pm at Expressive Arts at 32nd & Thorn, 3201 Thorn St, SD 92104. www.expressivea
