Five-Minute Phenomenon (Mahoney Gallery)

Herold Mahoney Library Gallery


Exhibit Dates

November 26 - December 18, 2018

Artist Marie Kneemeyer set out to explore this idea. Marie saved six months' worth of trash used for five minutes or less. The resulting art pieces represent two of the three pieces Marie assembled showing how much material is created, used and trashed with minimal use or value. 258 million tons of trash is created in the United States annually, about 4.4 lbs of trash for each person, every single day.

How much five-minute trash will you create over the next six months?
