June 5 – September 22, 2019

Art increases awareness and inspires change by examining important issues. In this exhibition, this innovative art highlights the abundance of single-use products which contributes to pollution and teeming landfills. Reclaimed: Life Beyond the Landfill showcases artists who reimagine and assemble discarded materials into original works of art, giving objects a second life.
