Art and Social Consciousness: The Opioid Crisis

domenic esposito opioid spoon

Artist Domenic Esposito garnered national attention last year after dropping an enormous burnt spoon in front of Purdue Pharmaceutical headquarters, a damning act of protest against one of the instigators of the opioid epidemic. Earlier this year he dropped a second spoon in front of Rhodsachues Pharmaceutical, an oxycodone manufacturer quietly based in sleepy Coventry. The two spoons, weighing a combined 1500 pounds, will be on display for just three days, along with a new series of smaller spoons. The exhibit also includes a video and, on Monday, a panel discussion about the epidemic moderated by the artist.
