Executive Committee member Pam Longobardi is currently showing a solo exhibition of her recent work at the Hudgens Center for the Arts. Pam’s work consists on plastic debris removed from the ocean. Pam collects, documents and transforms oceanic plastic into installations and photography. The work provides a visual statement about the engine of global consumption and the vast amounts of plastic objects and their impact on the world’s most remote places and its creatures. Longobardi’s work is framed within a conversation about globalism and conservation.

Where: The Hudgens Center for the Arts, 6400 Sugarloaf Parkway, Building 300, Duluth, Georgia 30097

When: April 16 through June 28
