Dumpster diving can be an artform, too.  For the next month, Gallery 151 will house an exhibit that both celebrates and utilizes our city’s fine garbage deposits – “TRASHION.”

According to the press release:

TRASHION is an interactive multi-media trash art-inspired event series and gallery show which showcases pieces made from recycled materials.  TRASHION is a refuge for things underused, wasted or under-appreciated.  Graffiti inspired art, chemical paintings, eclectic works made entirely of tape by Walker Fee, and bones by Matt Namer, clothing made of trash bags and metro cards created by Miz Metro and furniture made of neckties, paint samples and glitter by Kristy Leibowitz will all be on view.  Featured artists also include: Dan Walker, Francis Stallings, Patrick Sheely, Roland Politi, David Levine, Marcus Jefferson, Kipton Hinsdale, Jennifer Harris, Kate Goldwater, Zev Deans, Crosby, and Isaac Aden Hours are Wednesday – Sunday from 1:00pm-6:00pm

This showcase reminds us of the Derelict campaign in Zoolander.
