Installation: The Bagshare Project—Creative Reuse in Action

  • Friday, March 8, 2019
  • Nolen Art Lounge | Smith College Campus Center,
  • From March 08–April 08 2018. 

    BagShare Project volunteers transform locally sourced surplus materials into reusable bags. Leni Fried, local artist and printmaker, founded The Bagshare Project in 2007 in Cummington, MA. Since then over 30,000 reusable bags have been made by volunteers and shared in stores and food pantries. This installation tells the story of the project and its environmental impact---and invites you to take action!

    Presented in conjunction with Plastic Entanglements: Ecology, Aesthetics, Materials.
