2015 Mid-Career Professional Development grantee Christopher Lutter-Gardella built upon his experience constructing large scale puppets to explore abstract forms and expand his artistic practice into the public realm. Using discarded plastic as a medium, during the grant year he honed a method of crafting forms that reference both the human figure and human consumption. His grant project culminated in an installation for Made Here, on view until March 31, 2016.
