YI Artists spent time this spring learning about artist groups such as Bruce High Quality Foundation, and artists including Huma Bhabha, and Robert Rauschenberg, who use found objects as materials in their work. The teens scouted out found objects of their own, ranging from disposable contact lens packages to childhood toys and random items from the city streets. They used their found objects to create sculptures.
