A new art exhibit in New Jersey is putting the adage “one person’s trash is another person’s treasure” to the test.
The outdoor art exhibit called The Junkyard features work made from recycled and reused items.
The Hopewell Valley Arts Council organized the three-day exhibit that opened Friday evening in Woolsey Park in Titusville. Among the New Jersey artists featured is Guy Ciarcia, a sculptor who is passionate about both art and the environment.
“The tin can your soup comes in, the wrappers your bread comes in, whatever. All of that stuff with half a brain attached can be used. It can be functional. It doesn’t have to be garbage,” Ciarcia says.
The exhibit may be called The Junkyard, but what's been created there shows there's potential in almost any item that might have been thrown away.
The exhibit also benefits local arts. The $15 tickets help Hopewell Valley Arts Council to provide free education programs.
