Scrounger's Art

Fine art made out of materials that would otherwise be thrown away is trendy right now, speaking to all of the ways we consume, live in the short-term, and scorn anything that isn't new. Local non-profit SCRAP was way ahead of the art trash curve; it's been promoting creative reuse since 1978. The acronym stands for Scroungers' Center for Reusable Art Parts, and for the past thirty years this warehouse and workshop space has been taking in spare fabric, paper, buttons, beads, and wood and providing it to artists and students. Recollections: Celebrating 30 Years of SCRAP shows off the results, including work from Jody Alexander, Deborah Colotti, Emiko Oye, Remi Rubel, Reddy Lieb, and others.
