Greg Haberny "Burn All Crayons"
Sept 6 - Oct 5th, 2013

"Burn All Crayons" is Greg Haberny's first-hand account of the over medication of our youth. Drawing upon his childhood experiences with dyslexia and ADHA, "Burn All Crayons" exemplifies and amplifies Haberny's concerns about society's preoccupation and over-zealous practice of prescribing pills as the panacea. His sensory overloaded installation is an unapologetic assault on the educational, medical and pharmaceutical industries. It grapples with how these industries inundate us with their advertising and marketing and 'quick-fix' prescriptions to feed their billion dollar empires.
