Art From Found Objects: A Juried Exhibition at the Monmouth Museum
September 12 - October 31, 2010
Opening Reception: September 12, 2010 3 - 5:00 pm. Opening reception is free and open to the public. 
This exhibition focuses on artwork created from the undisguised, but often modified, use of common found objects that are not normally considered art, often because they already have a non-art function. Found art derives its identity as "Art" from the designation placed upon it by the artist. "Trash Art" is included in this exhibition as works are primarily comprised from components that have been discarded and then found. 75% of the media used to create works for this exhibition must be from either discarded, reusable or found objects. Juror The juror is Harriet Taub, Executive Director, Materials for the Arts (MFTA), NYC Department of Cultural Affairs.
