As ACAC’s Artist-in-Residence, Lougee is leading a collaborative community art project for the Minuteman Bikeway transforming plastic bags into public art. In this video, Lougee shows you the sculptural forms that volunteers are making by crocheting with plarn — a plastic yarn made by cutting up plastic bags. She discusses how these will be combined to form larger sculpture for her installation for PATHWAYS.

More information at Plarn Art to Save the Planet! is hosted by the Arlington Public Libraries and funded in part by grants from the Massachusetts Cultural Council, the Friends of the Fox Library, and ACAC’s Grants Committee.
