Aquaponics Sculptures – MFTA Third Thursday

March 21, 2019 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Come to Materials for the Arts to learn how to grow plants in unique places, and learn how to build aquaponics systems with reusable materials. David Marini, an artist who works with the Cornell Aquaponics program, will guide participants in how to create their own CD case planter and how to make large sculptures with fish tanks. Dive deeper into Aquaculture, Solar Punk, and Hydroponics, and explore the connections between art, science, and the environment.
