In Memory: Flores 'Flo' McGarrell (MFA 2004)

Flo McGarrell has spent the last year developing a sustainable life specific to living in Roswell, through sculptural experiments and systems that encompass scavenging, gardening, composting, cooking and preserving - all of which are "open sourced" as online and offline recipes.

Flo's previous body of work consists of architecturally scaled inflatable sculptures, film, video, and new media projects.

Flo received an MA from the Maryland Institute College of Art and and MFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, and enjoys teaching in many locales for a semester at a time, most recently in Jacmel, Haiti. Read more on Flo's website:
