From their website:
Houston Center for Contemporary Craft (HCCC) is pleased to present Wendy Maruyama: The wildLIFE Project, an exhibition that serves to illustrate the plight of elephants and the illegal ivory trade. Through a moving installation of life-sized objects made from exotic woods and string and shrine-like forms made from steel and glass, the show makes a compelling case for the preservation of animals in the wild.
These "ivory" tusks were made of glass and so, so beautiful.
This was just one of three exhibitions at the center. You can read more about them on their website.
Please come back and I will show you the artists in residence.
