If you missed the official unveiling of the Microtopias art installation on the academic quad of Ithaca College yesterday, don't fret. The wind has died down and the art piece still stands, in all of its glory, on the quad until deconstruction this weekend.
As has been mentioned in pervious posts, the interns have been working for the past few weeks on this art project. A collection of recyclable/reusable materials molded into the word microtopias, the art installation is a visual representation of our consumerist society. Materials range from plastic water bottles, to wooden pallets and shipping crates, to old electronics.
Make sure you make the time to walk by the college's academic quad to see the installation, then come back here and tell us what you think.

The installation will read "Microtopias" and will be constructed entirely of recyclable materials.
I love art, and I'm pleased to say that that I've never been a part of such a large art installation. I'm thrilled to be a part of something that's larger than life, literally!
Some of the letters will stand almost 6 feet tall.
Each of the five teams was given two letters to design, and last night the intern teams presented their letter ideas to each other. I can't express enough how amazing it is to be working with such talented, creative people!
The construction begins the weekend before FLEFF.
Stay tuned for pictures and updates. This is something you don't want to miss!
