NYC Trash!: Past, Present & Future Sculpture Garden (Through Sunday, April 29)

    Date: 04/07/2018 - 04/29/2018

    Time: All Day

    Location: The City Reliquary (370 Metropolitan Ave., Brooklyn)

    Price: Included with $7 admission

    Opening Reception Saturday, April 7th, from 12-3PM The City Reliquary’s sculpture exhibition -- in conjunction with the museum’s current exhibit, NYC Trash!: Past, Present, & Future -- presents the work of ten local trash artists whose works will be on display in the Reliquary’s backyard garden. The opening reception will be on Saturday, April 7th, at 12pm. The spirit of NYC Trash! reinforces the notion that trash can and should be reused. The sculptures on display are site-specific and fabricated from refuse and found objects. Through the use of trash as art, NYC Trash!: Past, Present, & Future Sculpture Garden highlights the need for continued conversation about our waste problem -- especially in a metropolis like New York City -- and allows visitors to look at trash as more than ephemera. During the April 7th opening, the Wildlife Conservation Corps (WCC) will screen 2 Lost Soles, a film about the urgency of conservation, and poet Jacqueline Ottman will read from her book “If Trash Could Talk.”
