Though she claims it's a happy coincidence, Miami artist Lucinda Linderman's exhibition "Reclaiming Miami" conveniently coincides with Earth Day's date of April 22nd. With her "upcycled sculptures", Linderman takes the discarded trash she finds around the city and her home, and constructs wild and abstract art installations with these materials. "I try to show people how we can use design and artwork," she says, "and how we can use this material as a natural resource instead of something that’s just cast away or something that’s disregarded." Through these transporting works, Linderman demonstrates that there are many alternatives to the landfill for all the mass-produced detritus that will take generations to decompose.
