- Artwork By Edward John Harkewicz
Today we visited the art exhibit titled “RECYCLED” at the Mezzanine Art Gallery at The Times Square building. The building is a former hotel that was turned to an affordable residency for the homeless by the Common Ground Organization in 1991.
The exhibit actually displays original artwork by nine of the tenants. The pieces are not only unique, but thought-provoking. The best part is that they were all created from recycled sources.
The gallery showed a range of innovative pieces. We saw beautiful abstract paintings on blocks of wood, collages made of magazines, coffee grounds, and dried leaves, interesting designs on an old pair of jeans, and much more.
The exhibit will be On display through January 29, 2010. The Times Square is located at 255 West 40th St. New York, NY 10036.
