Blue McRight’s artwork focuses on water, especially the ocean. Join Blue in creating suspended vertical sculptures that address projected sea level rise and the urgent problem of ocean plastic, utilizing simple techniques such as knotting, twisting, and looping using rope, nets, and salvaged ocean plastic collected and donated by South Bay community members including Captain Charles Moore, the Surfrider Foundation, and the Glove Boat.

How will we fathom, or understand, these issues? “Fathom” also can mean the span of your outstretched arms. In a series of three workshops, we will explore ideas about understanding and measuring by creating our own “personal fathoms”, resulting in a group of artworks that are related, but unique to each maker.

All of the Fathoms made in workshops will be exhibited as an installation at Bridging San Pedro, suspended from the gallery ceiling with the tops of every sculpture at 66”: the projected future sea level rise at Los Angeles Harbor.

Bridging San Pedro: Visual Literacy as Community Practice is focused on the development of visual thinking strategies in San Pedro community members through hands on making and deep listening exercises. Four artists with singular, but intersecting, art projects will work at Angels Gate Cultural Center (AGCC) to foster a greater awareness and association between the Port of Los Angeles, life in San Pedro and art as a daily lived experience. Each artist will lead free workshops during which members of the community will create elements that will be used to compose the final art piece. These projects will culminate in an exhibition, curated by Jill Moniz, in the AGCC galleries during the first quarter of 2020.

Saturday 11/9, 3-5pm – Building G
Saturday 11/23, 3-5pm – Building G
Saturday 12/14, 3-5pm – Building G
