(Honorable Mention – Mixed Media)
Title of Art Piece: Plastic Aspen
Category: Mixed Media
Student/Artist’s Name: Leila Pyle
School: Kodiak High School
Artist Statement: Medium: Reused plastic bags
This piece represents the necessity for people to become more aware of the unnecessary waste of materials in everyday life. I love nature, and I hope this representation of a tree, made from plastic bags, makes people realize that so many things we derive from the planet are also harming it.
