Exploring our Waste: A Creative Workshop with Artist sTo Len
May 19 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm
Join us for a workshop exploring our relationship to waste and the workforce that keeps our city clean and thriving with sTo Len, Public Artist in Residence for the NYC Department of Sanitation (DSNY). Alongside DSNY and the Department of Cultural Affairs, Len is launching the Office of In Visibility (OOIV), a multidisciplinary public art project that brings attention and understanding to DSNY’s critical but often invisible workforce. Enjoy an evening of art-making at Materials for the Arts as Len leads a series of creative prompts, encouraging us to dive deeper into the items we discard and the people who process them. Learn more about Len’s residency with DSNY including ride-a-longs on Sanitation trucks, early morning roll call, and trips to waste processing centers across NYC.
