Aurora Robson and CPCC Sculpture Students in the Exhibition Synthesis
Robson, a McColl Center for Art + Innovation Artist-in-Residence, designed a course implemented by Central Piedmont Community College sculpture students under Ashley Knight called “Sculpture + Intercepting the Waste Stream.” The students went to the Brightwalk neighborhood and collected waste from Irwin Creek (three truckloads!). Working with this trash, they created unique works of art that were exhibited in the show Synthesis, which featured a silent auction with proceeds benefitting a stewardship group that will continue the effort to keep Irwin Creek clean.
