From June 30-July 11, UCLA’s Center for the Art of Performance (CAP UCLA) is presenting The Plastic Bag Store, a public art installation and immersive film experience conceived by artist Robin Frohardt that addresses the foreverness of plastic.

To bring attention to this issue and suggest future actions, UCLA is hosting a Plastic Pollution Awareness Night for elected officials, local NGOs, philanthropists, academia, community volunteers and media to create greater awareness of the detrimental effects of single-use plastics, legislative efforts to combat it, and how the public can get involved. Co-hosted by CAP UCLA, UCLA Government & Community Relations, Institute of the Environment and Sustainability (IoES), and Sustainable LA Grand Challenge, this in-person event will feature a panel of experts and the artist in conversation.
