Senior Claire Bennett has an exhibit of "Trashy Art" on display in the Upper School Art Gallery.  "I collected the litter for the pieces by going on 'trash collecting walks,' used my artistic leanings to create pieces with the trash, and eventually putting together an exhibition to be displayed," writes Claire in her artist's statement.  "This project contains all three aspects of CAS: creativity, activity, and service."  See what and why she created this exhibit, and it will make you rethink your own use of unsustainable plastic.
