The Plastic Bag Store is a conceptual artwork by Robin Frohardt and its launch is made to coincide with New York City's ban on single-use bags which went into effect on March 1st, 2020.
Located in Times Square, the Plastic Bag Store presents an analogy to the grocery chain--but there is a twist. All the products, from the tomatoes to the sushi, are artfully made of plastic bags that were collected from the streets of New York City.
In addition to the interactive and awareness-raising artwork, visitors can also enjoy "a theatrical puppet show performance" in the evening, which was written by Frohardt to accompany the immersive installation.
