Trash, that ubiquitous blight and putrid bother, has taken on a new meaning thanks to the Goguikian Foundation's Extraordinary Art Exhibition, which opened Thursday evening.Some of Lebanon's most renowned creative minds created the pieces for the exhibition using jettisoned baubles, cans and bags otherwise destined for Lebanon's already over-capacity landfills.Over the past year, students who have received scholarships through the foundation have collected more than 3 tons of paper, 800 kilograms of plastic and 120 kilograms of aluminum in Burj Hammoud.The art exhibition in the heart of Beirut will, Hayek hopes, revitalize the conversation about recycling in the nation's capital. At the very least, she hopes it will make the public rethink what's in rubbish bins.
