The Seed of Life: Irene Hung’s Creative Wall Art with Recycled/Found Materials

May 8, 2022 @ 2:00 pm – 3:30 pm
Asian Heritage Month Festival

With Irene Hung, Peter Lo and Dr. Lien Chao

From dusted shelves, recycle bins, and garbage dumpsters, various recycled and other found materials were reclaimed before being dumped into landfill sites. The abandoned and out-of-date materials, especially those left behind by the computer technology, were dusted off, rejuvenated, and their values were rediscovered by the artists in the creative process to make unique and admirable wall art. Poetry will be presented in English, Mandarin and Cantonese.
