On view June 20, 2009 to May 23, 2010

Located in the: Art & Nature Center

Trash Menagerie presents over 30 improbable works of art created from things most of us simply throw away. This playful and poignant exhibition challenges visitors to think differently about the creative potential lurking in everyday objects. From an iridescent trout made from beach refuse to a flock of cheery birds made from tin cans, Trash Menagerie explores animals imaginatively made from recycled rubbish. On view in the Peabody Essex Museum's interactive Art & Nature Center June 20, 2009, through June 2010.
