Event Series Event Series: Fathom with Blue McRight

Fathom with Blue McRight

November 9, 2019 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm

In a series of three workshops, we will explore ideas about understanding and measuring by creating our own “personal fathoms”, resulting in a group of artworks that are related, but unique to each maker.

Blue McRight’s artwork focuses on water, especially the ocean. Join Blue in creating suspended vertical sculptures that address projected sea level rise and the urgent problem of ocean plastic, utilizing simple techniques such as knotting, twisting, and looping using rope, nets, and salvaged ocean plastic collected and donated by South Bay community members including Captain Charles Moore, the Surfrider Foundation, and the Glove Boat. How will we fathom, or understand, these issues? “Fathom” also can mean the span of your outstretched arms. In a series of three workshops, we will explore ideas about understanding and measuring by creating our own “personal fathoms”, resulting in a group of artworks that are related, but unique to each maker. All Fathoms made in workshops will be exhibited as an installation at Bridging San Pedro, suspended from the gallery ceiling with the tops of every sculpture at 66”: the projected future sea level rise at Los Angeles Harbor.  

This project is supported, in part, by the Port of Los Angeles through the Community Investment Grant Program.
