Oz in the News 3.12.15

Crosby artist Nancy Adams says her goal is to show adults and children that the lowly tin can does not have to be sent to the ever-growing number of landfills and that alternative art forms can be beautiful and comical, redefining their perception of what recycling and art can be in someone’s everyday life.

Crosby artist to participate in Oz-themed Houston art show   Crosby artist Nancy Adams might not be off to see the wizard but she will be a featured artist in an Oz-themed art show set for March 21 in Houston. Adams developed her love of tin can sculpting while in high school, heavily influenced by the early Earth Day celebrations. Her goal now is to show adults and children that the lowly tin can does not have to be sent to the ever-growing number of landfills and that alternative art forms can be beautiful and comical, redefining their perception of what recycling and art can be in someone’s everyday life. Adams will do just that at “No Place Like That Yellow Brick Road,” an art show on March 21 based on “The Wonderful Wizard of Oz.” The show is the brainchild of Houston artist Vena Ashley and will take place at 913 McKee Street in the Warehouse District just north of downtown Houston. In this show, artists have each created a piece based on their interpretation of the story of The Wonderful Wizard of Oz.  No Place Like that Yellow Brick Road will take place on March 21, from 5-9 p.m., at 913 McKee Street in the Warehouse District just north of downtown Houston.
