Young Artists collaboration on Chihuly-inspired chandelier

Ribbons of Light
Ages 8 to 12

Plastic bottles, mesh and Sharpie Markers
Instructor: Ida Leone
Assistant: Emily Montero

The colorful works of renowned glass artist Dale Chihuly are the inspiration for this project – a chandelier made from recycled water bottles. Each student hand-colored multiple bottles with a Sharpie and then they were cut into spirals or flowers. The plastic spirals were attached to a mesh framework with paper clips.

More than 150 bottles were used – 150 that will not end up floating in our oceans. We are proud of this inspired way to repurpose refuse.

34th Annual Summer ArtCamp Exhibition

August 13 to 27, 2017


Collaboration = Two or more people working together to realize mutual goals.

With the idea that working collaboratively can achieve greater results, we present this end-of-summer exhibition that showcases the stunning results of working together. Under the leadership of 14 instructors and 20 assistants, more than 300 young artists came together to create large-scale artworks and installations through cooperation and creative problem-solving. Enjoy!
