Environmental Artist Bryant Holsenbeck travelled from Durham, NC yesterday to start her mini-residency at the College of Charleston’s Addlestone Library this week. And, she brought 50,000 of her favorite bottle caps and jar lids.

Holsenbeck will begin creating her three-dimensional installation – a mandala – this morning in the Rotunda of the Addlestone Library. And she needs help!

Come out and join Holsenbeck and she constructs a work of art that calls attention to the detritus – everyday objects which were used once and thrown away – that she has spent a lifetime collecting. She’ll be working from 9am to 4pm this week.

Join us this Friday, October 22 at 5pm for the opening of her mandala! And, on Saturday, October 23, you’ll have an opportunity to hear from the artist herself in our special Artist’s Lecture at 11am. Click here for more details.
