Sponsored by the Recology Artist in Residence Program, this exhibition features photographs from Litterati, a movement that encourages the public to document litter using the photo-sharing service Instagram, and then properly dispose of the trash. Since its inception in 2012, more than 40,000 pieces of litter have been photographed, cataloged, and properly discarded. The exhibition will feature photographs from locations around the world, demonstrating this innovative use of social media to address environmental issues and initiate positive change.
