Virginia artist Charlie Brouwer has gained international recognition from his unusual community installations. He has built large-scale structures throughout the Southeast using many different types of ladders, all loaned from members of the community. The ladders are returned after their service in the installation is complete.
Many sculpture artists incur high costs because of the sheer volume of materials needed to execute a particular vision. Brouwer thinks outside of the box by involving the entire community in his work. The next time you’re counting dollar signs for a large scale art project, consider how you can get the materials for free. Why not?
