From plastic toys to dried bugs and leftover spaghetti, the materials these artists chose to use stretch our understanding of what art is and how to make it.

The artists who created the works in this special installation saw new possibilities in ordinary things. From plastic toys to dried bugs and leftover spaghetti, the materials these artists chose to use stretch our understanding of what art is and how to make it. The textures, histories, and colors of what some might consider trash spark creativity in others. Start here and as you explore other parts of the museum, continue looking for ways that artists give everyday objects a new purpose.

Why do you think these artists chose the materials they did?
