Presented by the Drexel Theatre and the Franklin Park Conservatory, in conjunction with the exhibition, Sacrifice + Bliss: Aurora Robson, opening September 9 at the Franklin Park Conservatory.
An environmental activist and advocate for plastic pollution awareness, multimedia artist Aurora Robson uses plastic debris, excess packaging and junk mail to create transformative works. Her large-scale sculpture and installations are displayed throughout the Conservatory’s plant collections, along with interpretative materials about environmental awareness and sustainable choices. Aurora Robin's work appears in the film, Bag It, an upbeat and inspiring documentary about the environmental impact of single-use plastics. Is your life too plastic? Did you know the average person in the U.S. uses more than 500,000 single-use plastic shopping bags per year?
Bag It has been garnering awards at film festivals across the nation. What started as a documentary about plastic bags evolved into a wholesale investigation into plastics and their effect on our waterways, oceans, and even our bodies. Join the Bag It movement and decide for yourself how plastic your life will be.
