"SALEM – This summer, the Peabody Essex Museum comes alive with creatures and creativity. Trash Menagerie, the newest exhibition in PEM’s interactive Art & Nature Center, presents over 30 inventive artworks made from what most of us throw away. From baking tins to water bottles, piano keys to plastic bags, the 24 artists featured in Trash Menagerie create playful artworks of animals through the imaginative reuse of rubbish. On view from June 20, 2009 through May 2010, this exhibition encourages visitors to see the creative potential embodied in everyday objects."
Check out the little slide show the museum has set up on their site, click on the three critters above, and guess which one of the 7 images is my favorite, love the colors and the object? Hint: it lives under the water??
