DESCRIPTION

In 1987, Islip Town became infamous when a barge containing tons of commercial trash from the town was forced to sail along the Atlantic coast for 3 months in search of a landfill for the waste. As a result, Islip Town paved the way for the nation to reduce, reuse and recycle.
This exhibition, our annual Open Call, asks artists to consider alternate ways to repurpose cast-offs, which might otherwise be waste.
