Tom GreyEyes Makes Sculptures from Trash on San Carlos Apache Reservation

Thursday, October 25th, 2012


Having personally seen them myself (and fallen into them), there are tremendous piles of incinerated/buried trash reservations throughout Arizona. Tom GreyEyes has made site-specific sculptures out of these piles of trash. With all cliches aside, it just goes to show that one person’s trash is another person’s art.

Tom has also been nominated in Phoenix New Time’s “Artistic Endeavors” contest in the “Urban” section. The winner will earn a spot in a gallery show hosted by Chambord.
