RENO, Nev. - A new art exhibit at the University of Nevada, Reno is combining creativity with reuse.

'Reused-plus-Recycled-equals-Art' is open through late September at UNR's Mathewson-IGT Knowledge Center.

University marketing and communications coordinator Deanna Hearn said the exhibit features about 100 works made of 80 percent reused or recycled materials.

"A foot made of plastic bottles that is crushing the world," described Hearn, "a piece of art called 'Scully,' who is a man made of used bicycle chains, things like 'trashin' fashion.'"

Hearn said 'trashin' fashion' is clothing made from plastic bags and other recycled materials.

Ultimately, according to Hearn, the showing is a fun and creative way to showcase and promote the practice and lifestyle of sustainability.

"But it's to allow them a venue to showcase their artwork," said Hearn. "Especially to reach out, to tell the community that we're thinking about sustainable issues here on campus."

Hearn added that the artists are mostly university and high school art students.
