Artists across the United States and around the world were invited by Landfillart, Inc., a Pennsylvania-based nonprofit, to transform hundreds of discarded hubcaps into fine art. More than a thousand responded, and 35 of the best submitted works make up this unique and thought-provoking traveling exhibit.
Objects represent a wide range of styles, sizes, and mediums, ranging from a lone repurposed hubcap to a series of them. Some are kinetic and incorporate sound. Others directly reference specific environmental issues. Collectively, they inspire viewers to reflect on the role of consumption in American culture and stimulate creative thinking about ways to re-use and recycle.
