THE WINNING DESIGNS
The team at Lakeland Polymers had fun flexing creative muscles and participating in the Boonton Arts Dog Days of Summer project. Dog Days of Summer is a public art installation showcasing one-of-a-kind designs by artists on life-sized fiberglass dog sculptures. The mission of the Dog Days of Summer project is to bring the arts and community together to make a difference for animals in need. Lakeland Polymers chose two dog figures to design. Team members were invited to submit design ideas before two dogs were selected for creation with plastic recycling as the prominent theme.
The blank dog form statues were received in April and the fun began as the team worked at bringing them to life. Both dogs were painted with several coats of acrylic paint and the smaller sculpture was carefully covered with PVC pellets, which are poured from a plastic bottle held in the larger dog’s mouth. The installation alludes to themes of keeping plastic out of landfills and recycled into new products.
SOME OF OUR CHILDREN LENDING A HAND ON BRING YOUR CHILD TO WORK DAY.
Both dogs were dressed in scrap vinyl capes and given super hero names- Mr. Fantastic Recycles Plastic and Scrappy. Lakeland Polymer dogs help remind passersby about the importance of recycling plastic and our role in keeping the earth clean and beautiful.
Lakeland Polymers is pleased to support a great community project. Mr. Fantastic Recycles Plastic and Scrappy along with all the other dog (and cat) sculptures are on display from June-September in historic Boonton, NJ. Several sculptures are available for adoption with a donation at www.Boontonarts.org throughout the summer to benefit NorthStar Pet Rescue, future Boonton Arts projects, and the contributing artists.
