                    Visit with Unsustainable Creatures artist Cynthia Minet on First Thursday

                    Posted June 30th, 2016

                    Ox_FirstThursday

                    CRAFTED will be open from 4-8 on July 7 for San Pedro’s First Thursday event, and this month you can visit with artist Cynthia Minet, the sculptor behind the Unsustainable Creatures exhibit on view at CRAFTED through 2016.  

                    The Ox, Elephant, Camel and Pack of Dogs on display at CRAFTED, all life-size sculptures, are made from post-consumer plastics, PVC and LEDs.  Cynthia Minet’s sculptures, drawings and installations stem from her interests in scientific and ecological issues, and her work often prompts viewers to ponder the complicated roles that plastics, consumer culture, and electricity play in our lives.

                    Her artwork has been presented in solo shows in Southern California at USC, UC Riverside, and CSUN, as well as a solo installation in the Los Angeles International Airport. In addition to group shows nationally, Minet has presented her work internationally in Italy, Israel, Denmark, and Belarus.  Her next major project is a commissioned solo installation for the International Museum of Art and Science in McAllen, TX, forthcoming in March 2018.

                    In addition to her career as an established artist, Minet is currently a professor at Moorpark College in Southern California and she has also taught in Rome, Italy and in Guadalajara, Mexico. Come by and chat with her about her work and enjoy an artist-led tour, shop the market, enjoy a beer and take the trolley up to the First Thursday events in Downtown San Pedro!  The parking gates will be open until 10 p.m.
