Galpão das Artes Urbanas

Saturday, October 31, 2009

Thanks to garblogger colleague Keith R.‘s wonderful recommendation, I made a point to visit the Galpão das Artes Urbanas while in Rio over Labor Day weekend—and to take lots and lots of photos of the neat stuff made out of trash by local artists. Apologies for the delayed posting. It’s been a crazy busy fall. The coolest thing about this trash museum/artist work space is that it is run by Rio’s department of sanitation, which supplies the raw materials. Now that’s a creative way to divert the waste stream!
