The Open Space Visitor Center presents  “Beautiful Trash,” an installation by artists Jessica Dunn, Nan Masland, and Katya Crawford. The project is a place-based work that serves to bring attention to the impacts of littering on our public lands. Trash/litter/refuse was collected near the Open Space Visitor Center (OSVC) by a team of artists and collaborative collectors. The collectors used the ArcGIS Collector app to note the geolocation of the item, the time collected, and other pertinent information. The collected items have been catalogued, and transformed into art objects with tags reflecting the geolocation, time collected, and other collector notes. An art map displaying the geographic range of the collection accompanies the art installation. The exhibit runs through May 5, 2019. More information at www.cabq.gov/openspace or call 897-8831.
