On view at the Peabody Essex Museum in Salem, Massachusetts is this exhibition titled the Trash Menagerie.

The exhibition is composed of 30 animal art pieces made of things that people typically throw away. Trash Menagerie aims to challenge viewers to examine the potential of everyday object before discarding them -- certainly a hot topic in these eco-friendly times.

Trash Menagerie will be at the Peabody Essex Museum’s interactive Art & Nature Center June 20, 2009 through June 2010. Stats for Garbage Animal Art Trending: Older & Chilly
