Van Hatten-Granath’s Project Featured in Magazines

Teresa Van Hatten-Granath, associate professor in the Art Department, continues to receive media attention for her “Green Bag Lady ” project. Earlier this year Van Hatten-Granath started making fabric bags to use in place of plastic and set up a Web site to give the fabric bags away to anyone who promised to use them. Her goal was to inspire artists to think about the ecological impact of their art as well as to produce work that has a direct, positive impact on the environment. The project will be featured in the fall issue of Positively Green magazine as well as the Oct./Nov. issue of Plenty magazine. For more information, visit www.greenbaglady.org.
