Workshop: T.O.M.T. (The Other Man's Treasure) Open Studio
Location: John Michael Kohler Arts Center, Sheboygan
Artist Rodney Allen Trice created T.O.M.T. with the vigilante mission to recover and reassign the purpose of objects considered too difficult to recycle. This open studio gives you the opportunity to save your own trashed or forgotten objects or anything else you might throw away or overlook in your garages, pantries, and other storage spaces, and give them new life. See the photo of Trice's Tri-Bulb Hoover Floor Lamp.
