Stacked Can Art to Benefit Food Bank
July 21-August 2, 2013
Salina Public Library, 301 W Elm
Salina artist Curt Krob is creating an art installation of a fish made from stacked cans of green beans, baked beans, carrots and spinach. The project begins on Sunday, July 21st and will be on view at the Salina Public Library following its completion, until August 2nd. Krob can be viewed working on the project during evening hours at the library.
The “stacked can art” project proposed by Salina Arts and Humanities was chosen through an online competition this spring sponsored by the Greater Salina Community Foundation’s “Love Your Community” grant category. Following the project completion, the canned food will be donated to the Salina Emergency Aid Food Bank. During previous months, the Salina Public Library has been collecting “Food for Fines” in support of the Food Bank.
Krob is well-known in Salina for his series of sand sculptures at the Smoky Hill River Festival. He has in recent years been a featured artist in the Festival’s Craft Demonstration Area.
