Be fruitful and multiply, and fill the earth and subdue it;

and have dominion over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the air

and over every living thing that moves upon the earth.  Genesis 2

 

The "Permission" for exploitation of the earth is now understood as a directive to care for or manage the earth as stewards.

  

For this exhibit, then, artists were challenged to create art from materials that would ordinarily have been discarded and become landfill/pollutants or to represent instances of rebuilding or re-purposing existing structures.

  

In such a way, we call attention to the need to examine our consumtion habits and re-think how we manage our "post consumer" resources for the good of the planet and the generations to come.
