Exhibition: Reincarnated Rubbish

reincarnated rubbish

The highly acclaimed Reincarnated Rubbish exhibition by artist Val Hunt that presents beautiful artworks created from recycled rubbish.

The focus is on the endangered and extinct and includes topical subjects such as a plastic ‘jellyfish’ and acid rain as well as Tyrannosaurus Rex and leatherback turtles. Did you know that earthworms are endangered? How rare is it to see a barn owl, hear a nightingale sing or spot a lapwing? Even bumble bees are on the endangered list.

Along with this are a range of hats that wouldn’t be out of place at Royal Ascot, unique jewellery and even the Queen. Look closely at the Queen’s photograph – can you spot the Chesterfield Museum and Art Gallery leaflets that have been used in her dress? Call into the Museum and see if you can find Guinness tins, Budweiser bottle tops and broken CDs.

Whilst at the Museum why not take a look at our Park Life exhibition (19 May – 15 September 2018) which looks at the history and stories of Chesterfield’s favourite parks or the Walk Down Chatsworth Road exhibition (20 September – 8 December 2018) which explores the community history of the Brampton area of Chesterfield.
