the art is in the bag

Works artist Dianna Cohen has fashioned from plastic shopping bags will hang in thePerkins Library lobby April 16-30, in conjunction with the Duke LEAF Award weekend, sponsored by the Nicholas School of the Environment at Duke University.  Cohen, writing on her website, says of her art, "Having worked with the plastic bag as my primary material for the past fifteen years all of the obvious references to recycling, first world culture, class, high and low art give way to an almost formal process which reflects the unique flexibility of the medium."
