Brooklyn Artist Jason Rosenberg is showing plastic bags a little love at Soho's Kiosk. His exhibit "Plastic Bag Happening" finishes up tomorrow, so hurry down to Kiosk's second-floorspace at 96 Spring Street from 3-7pm to catch Jason creating wallets and other small goods from the ubiquitous bodega bag.
If you haven't recycled all your Duane Reade and Gristedes bags yet, you can bring them over to Jason to exchange them, presumably for ones with hipper graphics. "From his own extensive collection, Rosenberg is hard pressed to choose a favorite. 'I like the Big Plastic Bag from Bloomingdales,' he says. 'But I also really cherish my bag from Systembolaget, the chain of state-operated liquor stores in Sweden.'"
Guess what! They'll be having a plastic bag wrap party tomorrow night at Kiosk from 6-10pm, so you know, get psyched for that.
