Aspen Debuts Giant Sculpture Of Solo Cup To Draw Attention To Single Use Plastics

“If you told me three years ago I’d be in front of this 10-foot Solo cup at the base of Aspen Mountain, I would have shaken my head vigorously. It’s taken on a life of its own.” -Paula Crown

If you are walking around the base of Aspen you might have noticed this new art installation designed to bring attention to the environmental impact of single-use plastic. The Aspen Times reports the giant sized ultra realistic cup created by Paula Crown is titled “Jokester” and was formed from high density polyurethane resin:

“This cup is about fun and it’s about joy and it’s about how we are in the world. But it’s also a big red ‘stop’ sign. We need to stop and think about what we do.”

Skico also choose Crown’s Solo cup work for its winter 2017-18 lift tickets graphics, featuring five photos of smaller sculptures.
