New public art on display, ‘flores pulchros’

JACKSON, Wyo. — New public art is on display in  Jackson.

Local visual artist, Suzanne Morlock has created “flores pulchros.”

The beautiful flower installments are made out of recycled materials from Teton County Integrated Solid Waste and Recycling.

Until the end of the season, Morlock’s art can be seen in 15 planters on the west side of Center Street between Deloney and Gill.

Currently an artist-in-residence, Morlock has spent countless hours at Teton County Integrated Solid Waste and Recycling learning about the inside operations of recycling in Teton County. Morlock has actively used recycled and repurposed materials in her art practice for over a dozen years.

According to Jackson Hole Public Art, this opportunity was a good match and has been an amazing birds-eye view into the local recycling world. “It’s a bit like a kid in a candy shop!” said Morlock.

Support for this project comes from the Town of Jackson, Teton County, Jackson Hole Public Art, the Community Foundation, and an individual Arts for All grant.
