“I chose to be involved in this project because the theme ‘Reduce, Reuse, Recycle’ is a modern version of the three ‘R’s”. Like most artists, I have too much STUFF. When I received my hubcap, it was a spiritual moment, as I presently own a Chrysler 300, and each time I drive to work in New York City I pass the beautiful Chrysler Building. I chose to create a hubcap showing antique Chrysler’s as well as the historic Chrysler Building. It is important for me to reduce my STUFF, Reuse my STUFF and Recycle my STUFF. “Susan Hammond
