Glass City

May 31, 2006 - Jul 27, 2006


Includes the work of the Youth of GlassRoots, Inc under the guidance of Willie Cole.


Urban youth transform recycled glass into a model city as a beacon of self-expression. In this exhibition, Newark youth work with internationally known artist Willie Cole to create a city made of glass, instilling new creative skills and self-confidence in the youth. “Glass City” attempts to reevaluate the cultural stigma of the word “city,” usually perceived with a pessimistic eye. These glass bottles, once presented as garbage, are now seen as sculptures symbolizing rehabilitation, discovery, and optimism.
