Duct tape is a mainstay in many household tool boxes; and it is an indispensable component of the Green Chicks’ sculptures. An exhibit of sculptures crafted from recycled and found items — along with duct tape — created by the Green Chicks, Nikki Cooper and Suzanne Miller [BFA ’89], is on view in the second-floor display cases at University Hospital, 600 Highland Ave.
Cooper and Miller have both dedicated themselves to helping the earth by repurposing and recycling items into art. More than a decade ago, the two collaborated to show their creations at art fairs. From there, they opened Green Chicks Studio in downtown Monroe. The studio offered them a place to create their art, teach classes and run a retail shop.
