> DESCRIPTION

Diverted Destruction 2


This summer, the Loft at Liz’s revisits the idea of Diverted Destruction. In this second annual show, artists create art with found objects they’ve diverted from the landfill.  Steve Olson, Maddy Le Mel, Melinda Smith Altshuler, Lark, Sandy Schimmel Gold, Ruben Acosta, Ramiro Perez, Savva Kornyshev and Juan Rosenfeldt incorporate household trash like used teabags, crushed cans, disenfranchised bits of metal, discarded mail and packaging into artworks designed to inspire you to look at your refuse in a new way.

 

This annual show is very near to our hearts at Liz’s.  It’s obvious that recycling and reusing are very important to us; the inventory of Liz’s Antique Hardware is comprised of millions of pieces of metal that were diverted from the landfill or the scrap metal yard. 

 

PowerPlant Choppers will be on display the night of the opening.  Also the night of the opening and closing we offer free remnants from the “artist boxes” at Liz’s.

 

During it’s run, from June 27 to September 15, the show will metamorphose, as new pieces by different artists are incorporated into the space.  We invite artists to submit their found object work throughout the summer.
