One Man's Trash...

It's very important that we shred our documents. Credit card statements, bills and even personal correspondence is indelibly stamped with part of who we are, whether it's an identifying account number or a grocery list. But for artist Robert McAn, a document's value doesn't end when it's no longer useful. He uses the shredded bits of paper, paint and other materials to create art. Identity Theory runs from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Mondays through Fridays and 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturdays through October 11 at William Campbell Contemporary Art, 4935 Byers Ave. in Fort Worth. Admission is free. Call 817-737-9566 or visit
Mondays-Saturdays. Starts: Sept. 6. Continues through Oct. 11, 2008
KEEP THE DALLAS OBSERVER FREE... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we'd like to keep it that way. With local media under siege, it's more important than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" program, allowing us to keep offering readers access to our incisive coverage of local news, food and culture with no paywalls.
