The Art of Recycling

Noble and Webster are a real shadowy couple

For those people who look at art and say "I can do that," this show is for you. Especially those of you who find comfort in not throwing trash away. The Goss-Michael Foundation will be presenting the works of Tim Noble and Sue Webster, who create mind-blowing sculptures from trash and junk and just might inspire you to do something with those stray pudding cups. Upon first look, you'll see a glorious pile of rubbish that would do any packrat proud. But instead of taking a closer look, step back to see its true glory. The mass creates a bewildering shadow that is usually a self-portrait of the couple. And now we get to see the British artists' works up close...well, not too close because then you'll miss it. The Goss-Michael Foundation, 2500 Cedar Springs Road, will host the works till September 30. Just don't expect to run into George Michael at the show. The "Michael" part of the Foundation is a little busy doing his North American tour. The Foundation is open Tuesdays through Saturdays and Mondays by appointment only. For more information about the collection and the gallery's schedule, call 214-696-0555 or visit gossmichaelfoundation.org.
Tuesdays-Fridays, 10 a.m.-6 p.m.; Saturdays, 11 a.m.-4 p.m. Starts: May 15. Continues through Sept. 30, 2008
