Trash Into Art exhibit

Through Friday, April 6
Location: Stata Center (Building 32) Student Street
More information:

The goal of Trash Into Art is to raise awareness around the value of waste materials such as cardboard, Styrofoam, plastics, metals and other objects found in a garbage can. A crucial focus is the impact of waste on marginalized people and communities.

This exhibition features student artists who were challenged to collect pieces of waste from their own lives (and/or from their communities) for a week, and to create a thought-provoking project from materials that would otherwise be thrown away.

Sponsored by the Muhammad Yunus Innovation Challenge, with the 2012 theme of "Waste: Put it to use."
