With Earth Day behind us again, the green- conscious know they need to get creative to keep the attention of an easily distracted public. The newest exhibit at ArtServe pretty much does exactly that: Trash-2-Art features artwork made from repurposed garbage and, in effect, raises awareness for Trash to Treasures cause of keeping the Earth clean.
Trash to Treasure is a nonprofit organization that provided local artists and educators with cheap art supplies: clean scrap or reusable items the group collected that would otherwise have been thrown away. By doing this, they provided a service both ecologically and economically green. The exhibit runs from May 2 to 21 at ArtServe (1350 E. Sunrise Blvd., Fort Lauderdale). Call 1-888-828-8242, or visit trash2treasurefl.org or artserve.org.
