Sandra Ono - CANCELLED


Please join us for a lecture with artist Sandra Ono.

Date: Tuesday, March 10, 2020 7:00 — 8:30pm
Location: The CIA at Copia Theater, 500 First Street, Napa, CA

Artist Biography

Sandra Ono’s sculptural work is informed by biology and physiology. Her choice of materials and forms arise from interests in the consequences of what we consume, and inversely, what consumes us. She frequently employs synthetic and ubiquitous, utilitarian products such as plastic bags, re-contextualizing these materials to create non-functioning, organic and corporeal forms which examine experiences of the human body, granting dimension to internal states.
