Artist Deborah Hecht has always picked up trash on the Lake Michigan beach where she walks each summer. The amount of trash she collected in 2017 was overwhelming, so she decided to make art from it. In her Beach Trash Series, Deborah uses the objects she found on the beach to create beautiful mosaics. “The challenge in these mosaics is to convey alarm about the problem and still have an intriguing composition,” she explains.
View Deborah's artwork through Saturday, July 20th at the Captain Thomas M. Kelly Biological Station, located at 100 Dame St, Suttons Bay, MI.
