Exhibit Dates: July 25–August 19, 2018
Trash: Things discarded, worn, broken, used up. How casually we make and then throw out these things that are no longer valuable or functional. What if we transformed this junk, this waste… what if we found a new purpose for these purposeless things?
Art can stimulate, aggravate, shock, intrigue, beautify, clarify. What can you find that is thrown away and repurpose into something artful that evokes an emotion within us?
Artists were presented with a challenge and an opportunity: step outside of their normal artistic parameters, create in a new way, using materials scavenged and found.
