Trash to Treasure

On display April - May, 2021, Gunn High School Campus

Gunn students, led by artist and teacher Deanna Messinger, have collected household, plastic waste to create human-like figures bringing attention to waste and up-cycling. These sculptures became 6 feet safety spacers during the 3-day Breathe With Me project in Bol Park. The Trash to Treasure sculptures moved back to the Gunn High School Campus after the event, to be placed at a variety of high-movement sites. A "Covid-buddy" outside the restroom, a fellow bench warmer while resting - a random surprise to find in unusual places.
