The Water Project was featured during ArtSplash, at Montalvo Arts Center. The Plastic Monster is made of nearly 500 plastic jugs and plastic water bottles that the kids, some friends of mine and I gathered at home. They contained milk or juice. The students were surprised by the amount they gathered. Knowing that in the end only a small percentage of plastic we consume is recycled and that tons of it goes to the ocean.
