Sheila Crider’s work articulates issues of contemporary culture through installations that embody social and aesthetic ideas. January ’15– October ’16 brings together mixed media pieces that utilize paper, fabric, metal, wood, and other materials, challenging our conventional definitions of fine art. Using recycled and repurposed materials and petroleum products, the installation Toxicity in the Air provokes awareness of the pollution poisoning our atmosphere.
