August 16 - December 6, 2013 and January 10 - February 2, 2014

For generations, artists have looked to found objects as a source for art making. Through creativity and ingenuity they have re-purposed and transformed cast-off materials, giving them new life as art. The artists in this exhibition take that tradition one step further—they look not only to discarded materials, but to detritus. Engaging a Zero Waste philosophy, the participants in Reduce, Reuse, Re-imagine rescue objects from the waste stream—items disposed of as trash rather than recyclables by local residents and businesses—and re-imagine them in a new context to create original, enticing, and thought-provoking works of art. Through their work, the artists shed creative light on our role as active participants in the management of earth's limited resources.

Made possible by a grant from Santa Clara University's Sustainable Resource Initiative, this exhibition draws upon the work of ten professional artists and SCU students. The show includes works in a variety of media, ranging from sculpture to painting to mixed media. Together, these artists explore new ways of thinking about art and the environment; their work encourages us to make positive, sustainable changes in our everyday lives and in our communities.

Artists include Val Britton, Ryan Carrington, Lauren DiCioccio, Julia Goodman, Jeff Hantman, Barbara Holmes, David King, Scott Oliver, and Sudhu Tewari.

Reduce, Reuse, Re-imagine is co-curated by Lindsey Kouvaris of the de Saisset Museum and Ryan Reynolds of the Department of Art and Art History. A
