About the speaker
Cheryl Pope is a visual artist focused in sculpture, installation, and performance.

Green Sheep is bottled water with a green conscience. That’s right: 16 ounces of purified water in 100% recyclable aluminum bottles. Aluminum is recycled more than twice as often as plastic and is also infinitely recyclable. Reusable bottles are always the best, but when you’re away from the tap, think beyond plastic.
