Trash Becomes Experimental Art
“Remember…beautiful and meaningful things can be made from old stuff.” – Marie Weichman, Professor of Art
The photo depicts a new art installation, “Making Waves,” that was designed and developed by Olympic College’s sculpture students during spring quarter. The sculpture installation is part of a class project through Marie Weichman’s sculpture class at Olympic College.
Professor Weichman divided her sculpture students into two groups, Green and Pink Teams, and told
them the only criteria was that they had to work together collaboratively and use recycled
child-size school chairs from the former Child Care Center of the old Humanities building. The Green team has completed their first project and is now installed. The Pink team’s project is still in construction and will be available soon. The Olympic College Welding students and Facilities Services also contributed to the installation and construction of the sculpture.
“Making Waves is experimental art that reflects our watery landscape but also has a deeper message of self-discovery and pushing boundaries,” said Professor Weichman.
The sculpture is a permanent installation and is located in the courtyard of the Music/Art complex on the lower level below OC’s Art Gallery at the Bremerton campus.
