Adam Long received an Integrity: Arts and Culture Association grant! This will help fund the ongoing creation of sea turtles for the Feral Plastic: Sea Turtle Project of adult sized turtles created from water clear resin and found plastic litter. These will be used to raise money to help fund organizations working to help wildlife and clean up plastic in our environment. Thank you IACA!
The Higher Education Channel features Adam Long’s sculpture exhibition, Forest Figure Fashion, in a recent video. Adam Long was interviewed during the opening reception of the exhibit which coincides with two other environmentally themed art exhibits at the St. Louis Artists’ Guild. These are artworks that focus on humankind’s interactions with the natural world and sometimes point out where we can do better. Many wonderful artworks can be seen in the video.

Adam Long partnered with the band, Karate Bikini, to produce a music video for their song, Watch Me Go, using one of his Forest Figures created as a puppet along with some other props all created in Adam’s studio. This is Adam’s first major stop motion attempt and it was definitely a learning process. Please be gentle in your reviews.
Thank you to all of the Karate Bikini band members for allowing me to create this with you and for all of the technical expertise to make my photographs into a video!
Adam has made some stills from the video available for purchase on FineArtAmerica.
