FINDING A NEW LIFE FOR OUR GARBAGE
March 01 to April 30, 2010
Renewed Function is an interior installation designed by Joe Gonzalez intended to inspire and challenge us to approach garbage recycling in more creative and effective ways.
This green installation encourages us to take items that we would normally discard and give them a new purpose. It also allows us to rethink how we can reuse our garbage for a more eco-friendly environment.
During the two-month exhibition, Casa Frela Gallery will be using its office space on the 2nd floor as the site of the installation to show how to reuse space as well as everyday items such as a empty coffee can as a pencil holder or a small jar as a paper clip container.
Local Harlem artist Joe Gonzalez (aka Dark Green Joe – www.darkgreenjoe.com) has been involved in numerous careers including theatre, television, special events, design, construction and eco-consulting. As an artist he focuses primarily on B&W photography and various “reuse” projects. As a global citizen, he is constantly reading and learning about the impact that each of us makes on our planet. It is only by stepping outside of the box do we begin to really grasp the scope of the problem and what we can do to help address it. Joe is currently launching a non-profit that gives everyday people the opportunity to help fund small projects in different parts of the world.

This year marks the 40th anniversary of Earth Day. Please join Joe Gonzalez at the Casa Frela Gallery, 47 West 119th Street (between Lenox and Fifth Avenues), 2nd Floor, in Manhattan from March 1-April 30, 2010 for his Renewed Function interior installation.
