Found Friday: Dumpster Art

A quick eye, a bit of imagination and a dose of luck is sometimes all you need to discover art lying right in the garbage. That's exactly where this geometric metal piece derived -- a dumpster at a construction site in Miami where my pal Robert Elliott and I salvaged it. Robert now lives in Queens and has used this tossed-out piece of building material and created a backdrop for this illuminating vignette.

  2. Definitely my kind of decorating - at my kind of price!

  3. This is wonderful in so many ways. Bold and graphic and free, ya gotta love it!
