Tara Donovan – From Paper Cups to Genius

What makes Tara Donovan’s artwork so amazing is her ability to take everyday objects and transform them into something new, fresh, and interesting. This 38-year old NY artist has made her fame by multiplying everyday objects to create unusual interior terrains. Tara’s work is relatively inexpensive to produce because she uses inexpensive, usually donated, everyday object. However, she recently received a $500,000 MacArthur Foundation ‘genius’ grant. It will be exciting to see what she is able to produce in the next 5 years. Check out her work on Coolhunter.
