Landfill Art, and now for something completely different...

Landfill Art ~  A wonderful project on up cycling tossed garbage.
Landfill art is an international effort encompassing one-thousand-forty-one (1,041) artists to claim a piece of rusted metal garbage and create fine art.

Callie's art piece

“This up  up cycling venture strikes a chord with how I view the world. We need to revitalize that which has been tossed aside, we are giving it a second life. Making something beautiful out of what was considered no longer necessary, it is vital for us to stop being such a throw- away society. I am an avid dumpster diver, painting on old mannequins, globes, and discarded wood. What we throw away can destroy the environment, along with the life inhabiting it.”  Callie
