Trash becomes treasure



Artists put their creative energies to work in turning trash into things of beauty for the City and County of Honolulu's annual "Recycle Art '99."

On display in Honolulu Hale's Courtyard Gallery will be more than 200 works by students and artists such as Bernard Moriaz, Cheri Keefer and Mark Alan Chai.

"Sunflowers," by Cheri Keefer, is made of
a thrift-shop blazer and buttons.

Recycling paid off for Chai, who regularly works with objects pulled from trash bins. His work attracted the attention of MTV producers who ordered dozens of his lamps to decorate the house where they are filming "The Real World."

Arts writer and educator Marcia Morse served as juror for the exhibition, which celebrates Earth Day. The show continues through May 6. For more information, call the city's Recycling Office at 527-5335.

"Happiness I ..." by Dale Marie Cronn, is made of metal,
paper, glass, telephone wire and recycled shutter doors.
