Scavage, Assemble, Survive art exhibit

Get into all of Durham's junk, but not the gross parts, with a visit to the Scrap Exchange in downtown Durham.

The non-profit that recycles industrial material from Durham businesses is hosting the Scavage, Assemble, Survive art exhibit until February 12. The exhibit features robots by Tyler Jackson and upcycled window-mirrors by Greg Mavraganis.

The pair don’t need to visit art supply stores to find the canvases for their art. It starts with the stuff people throw away. For Mavraganis, that’s often old windows, which he transforms into shabby-chic mirrors. For Jackson, reclaimed wood sprouts back to life as articulated robots that he calls “BLANKS.”

The event is free and open from 11a.m. to 5p.m.
