In 2016 I was commissioned by VSA TN to create a recycled bottle cap mural with Cohn Alternative School in Nashville for The Nashville Zoo at Grassmere. The students created a 4 x 6 foot recycled plastic bottle cap image of the endangered Clouded Leopard. The Nashville Zoo at Grassmere is part of a very successful international collaborative breeding program that has raised 28 of these endangered cubs since 2009.
The students presented the bottle cap image to Zoo officials during a ceremony held at the Zoo’s Educational Building in Nashville, TN.
The recycled bottle cap mural will be hung at the Clouded Leopard exhibit to remind the public of the benefits of recycling to our entire ecosystem.
