Buttons and beads, wreck yard salvage, thrift store clothing. All this and more were part of Tohono Chul Park’s “Re-Invisions: Art from Reclaimed Materials” show. In good company with local Tucson artists who reinvent, recycle, refashion disposable goods into one-of-a-kind art treasures.
“Old garments and accessories metamorphize into new creations…”
A thrift store find was transformed into a Chanel-style jacket, and published in the January/February 2008 issue of Belle Armoire magazine. “Coco” also hung at the Karen Lukacs: Transformations show at the Art Institute of Tucson.
