CSP art show features art collected from unusual places

Tales From the Trash takes place Saturday.

Tales From the Trash, a free showing of amateur art collected from thrift stores, swap meets, yard sales and even dumpsters, will be held from 6 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. on Saturday, March 14, at the Central School Project on Howell Ave. in Old Bisbee.

Laurie McKenna, executive director said in a press release, “For one night only, we proudly and shamelessly bring you a dazzling array of about 300 eye–popping, curious and sometimes mind–numbing examples of ‘found’ amateur art culled from thrift stores, swap meets, yard sales, flea markets and even dumpsters.”

The original art will be for sale Saturday only.

“Bisbee looks forward to this each year,” said McKenna. “The curators from Tucson blow our minds us every time.”

Doors open at 6 p.m. and admission is free.

CSP is a nonprofit arts and cultural center with the three fold mission of providing affordable creative space to working artists, preserving and adapting the historic Central School building as a cultural center, and fostering appreciation of the arts in the Bisbee community.

CSP programming is supported by Arizona Commission on the Arts, Southern Arizona Community Foundation, Freeport Mc Mo Ran and The Bisbee Foundation
