Turning Trash into Treasure

On a recent trip to Columbus, Ohio I accidentally stumbled upon this excellent art exhibit that presents plastic ocean debris in a visually striking way. The artist is an advocate for plastic pollution awareness and creates artwork using plastic ocean debris, excess packaging, and junk mail. Scroll down for some highlights of Sacrifice + Bliss, the traveling exhibit by Aurora Robson, on display at the Franklin Park Conservatory and Botanical Gardens.
