The Worthington Arts Council has chosen a proposal for Project Green, a public visual arts installation to celebrate the spring groundbreaking of the Peggy R. McConnell Arts Center. William Cravis, a visiting professor of sculpture and foundations at Ohio University, will execute his proposal this summer.

In keeping with Project Green’s theme of sustainability, Cravis’ proposal incorporates the use of thousands of plastic bottles and containers. To collect these materials, the Worthington Arts Council and Sustainable Worthington are partnering on a city-wide Bottle Drive from May 2 – June 18. They are in need of plastic containers of all shapes, sizes and colors. Bottles or containers should be rinsed out, the labels removed and the caps left on. The plastic materials can be dropped off at several sites across Worthington:

WAC Office/Griswold Senior Center, 777 High St. 2nd Floor
Northwest Library, 2280 Hard Rd.
Old Worthington Library, 820 High St.
Worthington Community Center, 345 E. Wilson Bridge Rd.
Worthington Municipal Building, 6550 N. High St.
