There’s no denying that one man’s trash is another man’s treasure. The Exquisite Garden, by Joe Brubaker and his accomplices is a build-out of – well, junk. Mostly. But then again, if you watch American Pickers, you might consider their finds to be a little reminiscent of Fred Sanford’s back yard.
Attached to the Carlsbad Library, The Canon Art Gallery brings some unique displays in its relatively small space. I was anxious to see this presentation, and to capture the rust and whatever else I could. However, it was very dim inside – I was told that the creators said that it looks better in less light. Dim, almost dark in some areas, Watch your step. I entertained myself, managed not to break anything and here’s hoping you find a little treasure in this display.
This video is of the collaboration on the garden in Bakersfield. Our exhibit here had different elements.
