Grow More, Waste Less
The students of my ART 201: Issues in Public Art class installed a public art piece in downtown Shreveport that encourages us to "Grow More" and "Waste Less." The words "Grow More", spelled out in moss, suggest that our appetite for more might be better satisfied by the slower, more thoughtful act of creation, rather than consumption. "Waste Less", spelled out in trash collected from our own homes, dorm rooms, and campus, highlight the impact of our current habits while calling us to a different approach. The project, located on the Milam Building at the corner of Texas and Louisiana streets, was executed with support from Shreveport's Downtown Development Authority.
