Potluck with a Purpose

The Office of Sustainability is hosting a potluck with a purpose on February 18th as part of the university's participation in RecycleMania, a competition between colleges and universities to see who can recycle the most and minimize waste the best. At this event, we will be hosting artist Leo Sewell on February 18th from 6pm to 8pm in the Rad Dish café (First Floor Ritter) for a Potluck with a Purpose. Attendees can bring a dish to share, fill up a plate, and then watch a presentation by Leo Sewell on his art, his inspiration, and the strides he's made in waste minimization.

Leo Sewell is a Philadelphia based artist and self proclaimed Junk Sculptor. He draws his inspiration from his childhood living near a dump and now creates captivating, larger than life sculptures with recycled materials. Recently his art was featured in the Philadelphia Zoo's Junk Rethunk art show, which featured artists who use recycled materials. Here is his website with some photos of his incredible sculptures.

This is a great opportunity for students learn about art with alternative materials from someone who as truly mastered the craft.
