Avant-Garde Art Exhibit: Reimagined

16 international artists who reuse and re-purpose unconventional materials to create art are featured in an art exhibit at the Cornell Museum of Art in Delray Beach, Florida. Reimagined is the name of the new exhibit featuring artists who  use recyclable and green materials including pill jars, credit cards, insects and scrap materials such as steel or wood and give them new life and purpose by transforming them into sculptures and portraits.

I am motivated and astonished to see the creativity these artists display in transforming everyday materials into stunning and imaginative works of art. As I travel my own journey to create green art, I appreciate the inspirations of other artists as they turn "trash" into treasures, and select materials that tell a story about their artwork.

"Landscape" by Paul Villinski
uses cans found on NYC streets to create butterflies

flying bird by Sayaka Ganz
uses plastic kitchen tools

"Lindsay Lohan" by Jason Mecier
portrait made from vodka bottles, cigarette lighters and other "hedonistic" scrap
The Details:
  • Cornell Museum of Art, 51 N. Swinton Ave, Delray Beach Florida
  • Reimagined: July 14 - October 18, 2015
  • Suggested donation: $5
I would love to hear how other artists repurpose scrap and transform it into artwork!
