Join ASMP New York, Live from the Kingsborough Art Museum, Wednesday, May 18th, for a walk through Barry Rosenthal’s Ocean Plastic.
The Kingsborough Art Museum (KAM) presents Convenience & Conveyance, a solo exhibition of photographs and installations by Barry Rosenthal, that address the environmental effects of our dependence on plastics.
Barry Rosenthal is a photographer and sculptor. He studied photography at the Dayton Art Institute in Dayton, Ohio and at the Apeiron Workshops in Millerton, New York with notable photographers Emmet Gowin and George Tice. Barry‘s fine art images can be found in the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art in New York City and the Springfield museum of Fine Art, Springfield, Massachusetts. Barry is a resident of Lower Manhattan, along with his wife and daughter.
“Found in Nature”, started in 2007 as an offshoot of his botanical work, has evolved from miniature collections of found objects into large-scale images that represent ocean borne trash. By using a combination of sculpture and photography and breaking down the found object trash into themes of type, color or whimsy, Rosenthal is able to bring awareness to the global issue of ocean pollution.
The Kingsborough Art Museum is located in the Arts & Sciences Building, on the campus of Kingsborough Community College, 2001 Oriental Boulevard, Brooklyn, NY, 11235
