VIDEO: 10,000 Water Bottles Transforms NJ Village Green
The Village Green in Summit, NJ is home to "10,000 Reasons," a 14-foot-high sculpture created by internationally renowned contemporary artist Willie Cole. The sculpture took two days to install, and is made up of thousands of used water bottles. "I often use recycled objects. Water and life are so related to recycling," explains Willie Cole, a NJ resident whose works are in museums around the world. "I think it brings a whole lot of discussion to the community," says Estelle Fournier, co-chair of the Selection Committee for Summit Public Art, a volunteer organization that commissioned Cole to create the sculpture. "10,000 Reasons" will be on display in Summit through May 2015.
