The art world is approving of his creativity, but derisive about his choice of sculpting material, with several influencers suggesting he cast his works in bronze.

Washington Sculptors Group and the Washington Jewish Film Festival will be screening Plastic Man: The Artful Life of Jerry Ross Barrish along with a workshop on assemblage art, Tuesday, December 1. After the workshop and screening, there will be a Q&A with the film’s producer and its artist subject.
