Cardboard Creations is an interactive installation intended to engage participants in an exploration of recycling and the creative re-use of paper products. Presented in conjunction with our Science Discovery Exhibit, Forest Findings, visitors will be encouraged to draw connections between product consumption and its impact on our natural environment. Cardboard Creations will feature a cardboard forest created by artist Jenni Phillips. This exhibit is funded through an ECOART grant from the Lexington-Fayette Urban County Government Department of Environmental Quality.
Artist Jenni Phillips is a freelance artist working and living in Lexington, Kentucky. Currently, she is creating and producing a line of jointed paper animals and original shadow boxes that she sells online. Jenni finds inspiration for her paper works in vintage paper toys, theater props design, animals, natural science, and ecology.
Cardboard Creations in the Library is a separate exhibition featuring cardboard sculptures created by Western Kentucky University’s art students. As part of their 3D foundations under the directions of Professor David Marques, WKU students used recycled and reclaimed cardboard to render everyday objects and construct self portraits.
