GLEAN exhibit challenges ideas about waste and taps the creativity of artists to inspire people to think about their consumption habits and what they throw away.
The exhibit will feature the works of five local artists – Vanessa Calvert, Jeremy Okai Davis, Asa Mease, Miel-Margarita Paredes and Lauren Prado – who have transformed a steady stream of the Portland area’s trash into art.
GLEAN is a partnership between Recology, an employee-owned integrated resource recovery and recycling company, Metro, the regional government that guides the region’s garbage and recycling systems, and Crackedpots.
The exhibition runs from August 1 until August 25; Friday through Sunday, 12 until 5 p.m.
The exhibit is free and the gallery is wheelchair accessible.
