Join Beth Garrett and repurpose plastic bags and help save the environment. Kids can experience how to turn their plastic bags into expressive puppet-like heads that they can stick in the ground like a scarecrow or raise up as they march around the Park in a parade. Discover the beauty in the color and print of the plastic bags while working in this environmentally friendly, sculptural art form.
Address: 32-01 Vernon Boulevard Long Island City, NY 11106
Founded in 1986, Socrates Sculpture Park is the only site in the New York Metropolitan area specifically dedicated to providing artists with opportunities to create and exhibit large-scale sculpture and multi-media installations in a unique outdoor environment that encourages strong interaction between artists, artworks and the public. The park’s existence is based on the belief that reclamation, revitalization and creative expression are essential to the survival, humanity and improvement of our urban environment.
