Artist Gwyneth Leech Draws on 800 Used Coffee Cups to Create a Playful Hanging Art Installation

“Each day, New Yorkers consume massive amounts of coffee, toted in disposable paper cups — and each day for the past few months, one artist has been transforming those cups into art. For five days a week since last September, Gwyneth Leech has been busily hand drawing on her used cups which she collected over the last several years. Sitting in the glass prow at the busy Flatiron Building, Leech has created both a performance and recycle-art installation for the public to enjoy as they make their way to work. More than 800 cups showcase her drawings ranging from playful colored dots to detailed city scenes.
