Art of Trash

"What is this?"
"What is it made out of?" 
"Wow, this is really strange!"
"I would never have thought of that!"

These are the types of comments people make while walking around the Art of Trash exhibit. 

There is sometimes the squeal of recognition as someone figures out what a piece has been made out of, or what it was in a former life. 

Here are a few pieces that caught my eye. I'll be posting more detailed notes on additional pieces in a follow up post.

Elisa Leiahola's lampshade made of water bottle caps and white ribbon. 
Elizabeth Keller's work: Big Butts - PVC pipe I think and rags, and....??

 Tina Lia's modern purse: soda tabs, VHS tape and Muesli cereal bags.

A hidden gem to the left side of the door as you leave the exhibit.
Tess Cartwright's Remember Nature.

John Wilson's Long Neck Skillet. A closeup of the baby bird. 

Storefront display of recycled and trash fashion.

Folded paper dress. 

Whimsical "closed" sign. 
The Art of Trash continues at the Maui Mall through Saturday, May 12th.
