Plastic Tapestry Revealed

15 Jul

7.20.22 Update: Gov. Baker signed off on the $50k earmark for Magazine Beach! Hurray and thank you Rep. Connolly!

At Mass Audubon’s Full Moon Celebration Wednesday, artist Michelle Lougee and Curator Cecily Miller unveiled their brilliant plastic tapestry—a soaring bird made by the community of single use plastic that will stay with us for the next 20-500 years. (Plastic bottles will last for 450 years!) While beautiful, this artwork reminds us that single use plastics must become part of the past. Invented in the mid-1800s, plastic became ever present in the 1970s.

Come down, take a swim, and check out Mass Audubon’s nature center, where there are drop-in activities daily. The Powder Magazine is open Tuesday and Thursday, 12-6pm and Friday-Sunday, 12-7pm.  For more about the Plastic Tapestry Project, click here.

See images of the Full Moon Celebration below. It was an extraordinary evening. So many good things are happening at the park, and they’re all FREE and welcome to all: swim lessons, stories & song, nature activities, yoga, poetry readings, paddling and more! See:
