Earth Day Art: Chris Jordan, Artist & Activist
The Stranger’s art critic Jen Graves has finally discovered our hero Chris Jordan; she should have come to the 4th Annual Seattle ReStore Recycled Art and Fashion Show back in 2005, when Ruby Re-Usable curated an invitational recycled art show that included Chris Jordan’s work, oh well, better late than never: read The American Hero and more about The American Hero on Slog
Jen refers to Chris as maybe the most popular artist in Seattle, which got us to wondering who we would pick for our most favorite recycled artist in Seattle/Pacific Northwest (“popular” being a concept that we don’t want to get into) … last year Regina Hackett posted some of her picks HERE
Suggestions for this year?
