What would you create from a blank canvas? What if that blank canvas was once a piece of trash? Beginning in 2008, Ken Marquis, artist and founder of Pennsylvania-based nonprofit Landfillart, Inc., solicited more than 1,000 artists from around the world to create and donate works of art made from discarded automobile hubcaps. The collection now numbers more than 900 transformed hubcaps, created by professional artists hailing from every U.S. state and 52 countries.
