“I wanted to be involved in this project because I am sensitive to the ever growing mounds of trash in our landfills and other places in our world. The product of our appetite for consuming and replacing items. I am always looking to repurpose and recycle items. This project was a wonderful way to showcase artist talent and take these iconic items out of our landfills. The hubcaps take on a more treasured and permanent existence. I was happy to be a part of it.”Patricia Dusman
